Administrative domains (ADOMs) enable the
admin administrator to constrain the access privileges of other FortiAnalyzer unit administrators to a subset of devices in the device list. For Fortinet devices with virtual domains (VDOMs), ADOMs can further restrict access to only data from a specific VDOM for a device.
Enabling ADOMs alters the available functions in the GUI and CLI. Access to the functions depends on whether you are logged in as the
admin administrator. If you are logged in as the
admin administrator, you can access all ADOMs. If you are not logged in as the
admin administrator, the settings in your administrator account determines access to ADOMs.
For information on enabling and disabling ADOMs, see Enabling and disabling the ADOM feature. For information on working with ADOMs, see Administrative Domains. For information on configuring administrator accounts, see Managing administrator accounts.
ADOMs must be enabled to support FortiCarrier, FortiClient EMS, FortiMail, FortiWeb, FortiCache, and FortiSandbox logging and reporting. See Administrative Domains.
