Feature Visibility – FortiOS 6.2

Feature Visibility

Feature Visibility is used to control which features are visible in the GUI. This allows you to hide features that are not being used. Some features are also disabled by default and must be enabled in order to configure them through the GUI.

Feature Visibility only alters the visibility of these features, rather than their functionality. For example, disabling web filtering on the Feature Visibility page does not remove web filtering from the FortiGate, but removes the option of configuring web filtering from the GUI. Configuration options will still be available using the CLI.

Enabling/disabling features

Feature Visibility can be found at System > Feature Visibility. Ensure that all features you wish to configure in the GUI are turned on, and that features you wish to hide are turned off. When you have finished, select Apply. Security feature presets

The main security features can be toggled individually, however six system presets (or Feature Sets) are available:

  • NGFW should be chosen for networks that require application control and protection from external attacks. l ATP should be chosen for networks that require protection from viruses and other external threats. l WF should be chosen for networks that require web filtering. l NGFW + ATP should be chosen for networks that require protection from external threats and attacks.
  • UTM should be chosen for networks that require protection from external threats and wish to use security features that control network usage. This is the default setting.
  • Custom should be chosen for networks that require customization of available features (including the ability to select all features).
