The first AP must be assigned to port 3 and the second AP must be assigned to port 4 in the swich. The APs are new.

 

How to execute this requist and what should I pay attention to?

As a start you have to create a dedicated VLAN for AP management and make sure to enable "Security Fabric Connection" on that interface in FGT and create a DHCP scope. Make this VLAN as native VLAN on port 3 and 4 of the FSW (from Switch controller). The AP will find the FGT and will require to be authorized from FGT. FortiAP Profile may be needed to set your desired configurations.

Hello @Fikret ,

 

You can follow this document for how to register and manage FortiAP's with Fortigate. 

 

https://docs.fortinet.com/document/fortiap/7.4.2/fortiwifi-and-fortiap-configuration-guide/977141/ge...

 

Firstly you need to create a FortiLink interface for FortiAPs. If you already have you can use this (Fortigates comes configured this port).  After that, you can connect a cable between this port and the switch port. If you create a special vlan for this connection. You just need to configure an access vlan port for these ports. If FortiAP and FortiLink port in the same vlan/broadcast domain, FortiAP will get an IP address automatically from Fortigate and will be manageable.
