Replacement message groups

Replacement message groups enable you to view common messages in groups for large carriers. Message groups can be configured by going to Config > Replacement Message Group.

Using the defined groups, you can manage specific replacement messages from a single location, rather than searching through the entire replacement message list.

If you enable virtual domains (VDOMs) on the FortiGate unit, replacement message groups are configured separately for each virtual domain. Each VDOM has its own default replacement message group, configured from System > Replacement Message Group.

When you modify a message in a replacement message group, a reset icon appears beside the message in the group.

Select the reset icon to reset the message in the replacement message group to the default version.
