Communication with FortiAnalyzer for logging
This section applies only if you are sending logs from FortiClient to FortiAnalyzer. If you are not sending logs, skip this section.
Sending logs to FortiAnalyzer requires you enable ADOMs in FortiAnalyzer and add FortiClient EMS to FortiAnalyzer. FortiClient EMS is added as a device to the FortiClient ADOM in FortiAnalyzer. See the FortiAnalyzer Administration Guide.
FortiClient supports logging to FortiAnalyzer. If you have a FortiAnalyzer and configure FortiClient to send logs to FortiAnalyzer, a FortiAnalyzer CLI command must be enabled and an SSL certificate is required to support communication between the FortiClient Web Filter extension and FortiAnalyzer.
If you use a public SSL certificate, you only need to add the public SSL certificate to FortiAnalyzer. See Adding an SSL certificate to FortiAnalyzer.
However, if you prefer to use a certificate not from a common CA, you must add the SSL certificate to FortiAnalyzer and push your certificate's root CA to the Google Chromebooks. Otherwise, the HTTPS connection between the FortiClient Chromebook Web Filter extension and FortiAnalyzer does not work. See Uploading root certificates to the Google Admin console.
You must use the FortiAnalyzer CLI to add HTTPS-logging to the allow-access list in FortiAnalyzer. This command is one step in the process that allows FortiAnalyzer to receive logs from FortiClient.
In FortiAnalyzer CLI, enter the following command:
config system interface
set allowaccess https ssh https-logging
