Hello,

 

You may consider to download FortiGate configuration file and parse it with notepad/python scripts.

Hi,

there is no built-in tool/way to export rulebase/objects directly into XLS/CSV/etc formats. You can:

  • Export configuration - it is a structured text file, so it can be parsed with scripts quite easily
  • Get needed info by using Fortigate API and scripting of some kind.
  • (Probably) Use some web scraping software to download Fortigate web gui page of interest.
