[FortiAnalyzer]Device user and password settings

In the device edit section, there is a place to enter the FortiGate user and password.

Why is this item needed?

The OS of FortiAnalyzer is v6.0.8.

If you right click on a device, you can open a connection to the device. That's what you need credentials for. Just for logging you don't need credentials, an acknowledgement will suffice.

Thank you for answering


After setting the user and password, FortiGate now shows unknown logs.

Login from loopback address


Is this because FortiAnalyzer is automatically trying to log in using the user and password I set?

Why does it behave like this?
