Description

This article describes about 'Access key ID, Secret access key, Region name' options missing on the AWS public SDN connector.

Scope FortiGate AWS, FortiGate AWSONDEMAND | Tested in 6.4.8
Solution

When a user  tries to create/edit AWS public SDN connector in GUI under   Security Fabric - > External Connectors - > Amazon Web Services (AWS), certain options are missing.

Not just GUI, same behavior is seen in CLI, there are no options for 'Access key ID, Secret access key, or Region name' under 'config system sdn-connector'.

To resolve this issue disable 'use-metadata-iam' using following commands:

 

# config system sdn-connector

     edit 1

         set use-metadata-iam disable (Once this is disabled, the following options will appear)

         set access-key <string>

         set secret-key <passwd>

         set region <string>

     next

  end
