EMS Administration Guide

Configuring Endpoints settings

  1. Go to System Settings > Endpoints.
  2. Configure the following options:

    FortiClient telemetry connection key

    Add the FortiClient Telemetry connection key for FortiClient EMS. FortiClient must provide this key during connection.

    Keep alive interval

    Each connected FortiClient endpoint sends a short keep-alive message to FortiClient EMS at the specified interval.

    Full keep alive interval

    Each connected FortiClient endpoint sends a full keep-alive message to FortiClient EMS at the specified interval.

    License timeout

    Each connected FortiClient endpoint consumes a license seat.

    If an endpoint disconnects from FortiClient EMS, EMS retains the license seat in anticipation that the endpoint will reconnect. If the endpoint does not reconnect within the given timeout, EMS removes its connection record.

    If the endpoint is removed, switched off, or becomes offline, and does not reestablish Telemetry connection to FortiClient EMS within the given timeout, EMS deletes the endpoint even if FortiClient on the endpoint shows that it is still connected to FortiClient EMS.

    Automatically upload avatars

    FortiClient uploads user avatars to all FortiGates, FortiAnalyzers, and FortiClient EMS servers it is connected to.

    Allow duplicate FortiClient registrations

    Allows duplicate FortiClient registrations by assigning the duplicate registrations new UIDs. Enabling this feature requires all devices to reregister, and EMS loses their historical event data. This setting is only supported for FortiClient 6.2 endpoints.

  3. Click Save.
