(Optional) Bootstrapping FortiGate on the OCI GUI at initial boot-up

This section explains how to add bootstrapping of FortiGate CLI commands and a BYOL license at the time of initial boot-up as part of instance creation on the OCI GUI console.

    This example CLI sets the timezone as GMT-9 Alaska. You can replace these lines with your own set of CLI commands.

  3. Download a FortiGate-VM license file from Customer Service & Support after registering your product code. In the sample text found in step 1, find the following lines:

    20 -----BEGIN FGT VM LICENSE-----

    21 Replace with your own

    22 -----END FGT VM LICENSE-----

  4. You will copy and paste this content into the OCI GUI during instance creation in Advanced Options > Management > User data. See steps 2h in Creating the FortiGate instance or 5e in Creating an instance by selecting an OCI partner image.
