Determining Your Licensing Model

FortiGate-VM for AWS supports both on-demand (PAYG) and bring-your-own-license (BYOL) licensing models.

On-demand users don't need to register from the FortiGate GUI console. If you're using an on-demand licensing model, once you create the FortiGate-VM instance in AWS, contact Fortinet Customer Support with the following information:

  • The serial number of your FortiGate-VM instance
  • The email ID of your Fortinet account. If you don't have a Fortinet account, you can create one at Customer Service & Support.

If you're deploying a FortiGate-VM in the AWS Marketplace with BYOL, you must obtain a license to activate it.
