Creating administrators

To create a new administrator account, you must be logged in to an account with sufficient privileges, or as a super user administrator.

You need the following information to create an account:

  • Which authentication method the administrator will use to log in to the FortiAnalyzer unit. Local, remote, and Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) authentication methods are supported.
  • What administrator profile the account will be assigned, or what system privileges the account requires.
  • If ADOMs are enabled, which ADOMs the administrator will require access to.
  • If using trusted hosts, the trusted host addresses and network masks.

For remote or PKI authentication, the authentication must be configured before you create the administrator. See Authentication for details.
