Configuring Endpoints settings

To configure 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.

    You can generate a QR code for the specified key. See Generating a QR code for centrally managing FortiClient (Android) and (iOS) endpoints.

    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.

    The default license timeout value is 30 days. The maximum allowed value is 45 days.

    Automatically upload avatars

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

    Enable endpoint snapshot reports

    Enable endpoint snapshot reports and enter the interval at which to take reports in seconds. The interval must be between 300 and 86400 seconds.

  3. Click Save.
