When the administrator logs in to the FortiGate for the first time by using the SSO option, a local SAML SSO account is automatically created on the FortiGate SP.

To log in to FGT_B using Single Sign-On:
  1. At the FGT_B login prompt, click or via Single Sign-On.

    The SSO log in prompt opens.

  2. Enter the login information for the administrator that you just created on FGT_A.

  3. Click Login.

    A GUI warning opens.

    As the account is using a restricted access profile, additional permissions must be granted by the device administrator.
