Global Admin – GUI Language – Idle Timeout – FortiAnalyzer – FortiOS 6.2.3

GUI language

The GUI supports multiple languages, including:

l English l Simplified Chinese l Spanish l Traditional Chinese l Japanese l Korean

By default, the GUI language is set to Auto Detect, which automatically uses the language used by the management computer. If that language is not supported, the GUI defaults to English. For best results, you should select the language used by the operating system on the management computer.

For more information about language support, see the FortiAnalyzerRelease Notes.

To change the GUI language:

  1. Go to System Settings > Admin > Admin Settings.
  2. Under the View Settings, In the Language field, select a language, or Auto Detect, from the dropdown list.
  3. Click Apply to apply the language change.

Idle timeout

To ensure security, the idle timeout period should be short. By default, administrative sessions are disconnected if no activity takes place for five minutes. This idle timeout is recommended to prevent anyone from using the GUI on a PC that was logged in to the GUI and then left unattended. The idle timeout period can be set from 1 to 480 minutes.

To change the idle timeout:

  1. Go to System Settings > Admin > Admin Settings.
  2. Change the Idle Timeout period as required.
  3. Click Apply.
