Determining your licensing model
On-demand users do not need to register from the FortiGate-VM GUI console. If you are using an on-demand licensing model, once you create the FortiGate-VM instance in AWS, contact Fortinet Customer Support with the following information:
- Your FortiGate-VM instance serial number
- Your Fortinet account email ID. If you do not have a Fortinet account, you can create one at Customer Service & Support.
If you are deploying a FortiGate-VM in the AWS marketplace with BYOL, you must obtain a license to activate it.
