FortiGate Cloud – Homepage

Homepage

You see the homepage when you first open the FortiGate Cloud interface. From the homepage, you can add a FortiGate as described in To deploy a FortiGate/FortiWifi to FortiGate Cloud using the key: on page 11. You can also go to the Analysis on page 16, Management on page 29, SandBox on page 35, and Inventory on page 40 pages.

To view Fortinet devices that you have deployed using the same FortiCloud account under a different service, you can click # device(s)in othersite. This does not display if you have not deployed any devices under a different service. This displays a dropdown list of devices deployed using the same FortiCloud account under a different service. For example, if you are currently logged in to the Europe service, this link displays a dropdown list of devices deployed under the global service. If there are more than 20 devices deployed to the other service, the dropdown list only displays 20. You can go to the other service homepage by clicking Switch Site.

The homepage also displays currently active devices that you previously deployed to the current service, but later deployed to another service. For example, if you deployed a FortiGate to the global service, then deployed it to the Europe service, it shows up in the homepage for both services. The Active in column in the Analysis, Management, and SandBox homepages displays which service the device is currently connected to.
