FortiManager 6.0.0

FortiManager version 6.0.0 includes the following new features and enhancements:

SD-WAN improvements

You can centrally provision SD-WAN templates by specifying SD-WAN interface members, WAN link performance criteria, and application routing priority.

Object dynamic mapping is now supported in SD-WAN templates, and you can install the settings defined in the SD-WAN templates to managed FortiGates. See SD-WAN.

SD-WAN central template

From the Device Manager pane, you can now configure a central SD-WAN template, and then install the settings in the SD-WAN template to multiple FortiGates. See SD-WAN templates.

SD-WAN monitoring

You can now centrally monitor SD-WAN performance:

  • Map View displays SD-WAN enabled devices on Google Map with color coded icons. Mouse over to view health performance statistics for each SD-WAN link member
  • Table View provides more granular information on each SD-WAN link member such as link status, applications performance and their bandwidth usage.

See Monitor SD-WAN.

Export IPS and application information to file in CSV format

You can export IPS or Application signature information to a CSV file from the Intrusion Prevention or Application Control profiles under the Object Configuration menu. See Export signatures to CSV file format.

Export device list to file in CSV format

You can now export the device list table to a file in a comma-separated value (CSV) format from the Device Manager pane. See Importing and exporting device lists.

Find and replace objects

Find and Replace option is now available by right-clicking an object from the policy table. It finds all occurrences of the selected object and allows to replace one or multiple occurrences by one-click. See Find and replace objects.

Fortinet Security Fabric Rating

Security Fabric Ratings can now be viewed from FortiManager in the Fabric View pane. You can view results for multiple Security Fabric groups. See Fabric View.

Automatic policy package install for offline devices

From the Install Wizard, the offline devices are now available for a policy package install. If selected, the device database of the offline devices will be updated, and the policy package will be automatically pushed to the devices once they are back online.

Workspace device lock

When Workspace mode is enabled, you can use the Device Manager pane to apply a lock to one or more devices before making configuration changes. See Locking a device

Workflow improvements

When workflow mode is enabled, you can preview your diff before submitting the changes.

AP Manager floor map support

A floor map image file can be imported to the AP Manager pane from the Map View tab. The managed FortiAPs can then be placed on the floor map for easy monitoring. See Floor map.
