Reports provide a way to analyze log data without manually going through a large amount of logs to get to the information you need. This section explains how to configure a FortiOS report and how to modify the existing default FortiOS Security Features report. The FortiOS default Security Features report is a report that gathers security feature activity information and compiles it into a report. This section also explains how to view these reports.

Reports provide a clear, concise overview of what is happening on your network based on log data, without manually going through large amounts of logs. Reports can be configured on a FortiGate unit or a FortiAnalyzer unit. However, in this document only FortiOS reports are explained. FortiOS reports are the reports that are generated on the FortiGate unit. FortiAnalyzer reports are configured on a FortiAnalyzer unit and for information about those reports, see the FortiAnalyzer Administration Guide.

Disk or memory logging must be enabled for reporting to be enabled. Local Reporting can then be enabled in Lo& Report > Log Settings, in order to view and edit reports.
