Hello everyone,


we have ha 600e firewalls. they work by 7.2.0 firmware. We want get configuration backup via automation stitch.

when we execute the command on cli the backup file sends to ftp server. But while we set the trigger time. trigger can't start.


I attached the config


config system automation-action
edit "BackupScript"
set action-type cli-script
set script "execute backup config ftp /ftp/backup_%date%%_%%time%%.conf sandbox 1"
set execute-security-fabric enable
set accprofile "super_admin"


config system automation-trigger
edit "TriggerBackup"
set trigger-type scheduled
set trigger-frequency hourly
set trigger-minute 50


config system automation-stitch
edit "BackupStitch"
set trigger "TriggerBackup"
config actions
edit 1
set action "BackupScript"
set delay 5

I am not sure if the output was copied from the Fortigate or not, but if it was, your data variable appears to be missing a %:


%date%% should be %%date%%
