Provisioning FortiClient Android endpoints for central management

You can use a third-party QR code generator to create a QR code to distribute to FortiClient (Android) users. FortiClient (Android) users can scan the QR code from their device to automatically enable FortiTelemetry and attempt connection to the specified FortiClient EMS and FortiGate.

QR codes can contain the FortiClient EMS server's hostname or IP address, port number, and a connection key. Only the FortiClient EMS hostname/IP address is required; all other fields are optional. The following table summarizes the possible syntax used to generate the QR code:

Scenario

Format

Example

Includes hostname or IP address, port number, and connection key.

fortitelemetry://<EMS hostname or IP address>:<port number> <connection key>

fortitelemetry://192.168.128.12:8013 11111

Includes hostname or IP address, port number, with no connection key.

fortitelemetry://<EMS hostname or IP address>:<port number>

fortitelemetry://192.168.128.12:8013

Includes hostname or IP address only. Uses the default port and has no connection key.

fortitelemetry://<EMS hostname or IP address>:

fortitelemetry://192.168.128.12:

  1. Open the QR code generator of your choice.
  2. Enter the hostname/IP address, port number, and/or connection key information as desired, using one of the formats above.
  3. Generate the plain text QR code.
  4. Email the QR code to FortiClient (Android) users.
