Tag group assignment rules

Creating or uploading a FortiClient 6.0 installer includes an option to specify an endpoint tag. For example, consider you want all endpoints located in your company's headquarters to be placed in the same endpoint group. You can configure a FortiClient 6.0 installer with an "HQ" tag, then deploy this installer to the desired endpoints. When the endpoints' FortiClient connects to FortiClient EMS, FortiClient EMS places them in the desired group. In this situation, the process is as follows:

  1. In FortiClient EMS, create a tag group assignment rule that requires endpoints with the tag "HQ" to be placed into the HQ group. The tag's and group's names do not need to match. See Adding a tag group assignment rule.
  2. Create or upload a FortiClient 6.0 installer. Specify the "HQ" tag when creating or uploading the installer. See Adding FortiClient installers or Uploading custom FortiClient installers.
  3. Deploy the installer to the desired endpoints or send the download link to the desired users.
  4. The endpoints install FortiClient. When FortiClient connects to FortiClient EMS, the endpoint is placed in the HQ group.
