Checking metadata API access

To populate dynamic objects, the FortiGate-VM must have API access to required resources on the Google Cloud Compute Engine.

To check metadata API access:
  1. On the GCP Compute Engine, go to the FortiGate-VM.

  2. Scroll down to Cloud API Access Scopes and check the Compute Engine configuration. If Compute Engine is disabled, you must enable it:
    1. Stop the VM.
    2. Once the VM is completely stopped, click Edit.
    3. From the Compute Engine dropdown list, select Read/Write access.
    4. Save the change, then restart the VM.
