Model device definitions by CSV file

You can use a CSV file to add multiple model devices to FortiManager. The CSV file must contain the following columns to be used with the example in this guide:

  • sn (serial number)
  • device blueprint
  • name
  • branch_id

Each row in the CSV file defines a branch device.

The branch_id column is optional. However it is used in this guide to represent a metafield created by the SD-WAN overlay template. Keep in mind:

  • Each branch device must have its own unique value.
  • Duplicate IDs are not allowed.
Note

You must create a device blueprint in FortiManager before you can import the CSV file. See Creating a device blueprint.

Following is an example of a CSV file:

sn

device blueprint

name

branch_id

FGVM08TM2100xxxx

corpa_branch_blueprint

Branch3

3

FGVM08TM2100xxxx

corpa_branch_blueprint

Branch4
