Heck yes. I've been looking for this. Thank you!


I was really disappointed when the FAZ gave me no options for devices. This solution makes perfect sense, I just wished it was called out more clearly in the docs for FAZ.


Invaluable info, thanks. This really should be spelled out in part of the mainline documentation for FortiOS and/or FAZ.
