Pushing configuration information to FortiClient

After the endpoints' FortiClient connects Telemetry to FortiClient EMS, EMS manages the endpoints, and you can use FortiClient EMS to push configuration information to FortiClient software on endpoints.

  1. Edit an existing profile or create a new profile to configure FortiClient software on endpoints. See Creating a profile to configure FortiClient.
  2. Edit an existing endpoint policy or create a new endpoint policy that is configured with desired profile. Configure the endpoint policy to apply to domains and workgroups to deploy FortiClient on endpoints. See Adding an endpoint policy.

    After you apply the endpoint policy to endpoint groups, EMS pushes profile changes to endpoints with the next Telemetry communication.

  3. Monitor the update using the Endpoints pane. See Viewing the Endpoints pane.
