I'm trying to wrap my head around something that's been confusing me for a while with FortiCloud - more specifically FortiGate Cloud. Right now I have a FG-101E with a FS-124E-FPOE switch and a pair of FAP-S421E access points. The FortiGate is connected to FortiGate Cloud and works just fine in that regard. From there I can access the menus as they related to the wireless and switching controllers just like being on the local FortiGate (well, close but not all the same).
There is the whole FortiAP Cloud and FortiSwitch Cloud options in FortiCloud but my understanding is that those are only for stand alone access points and switches. In my case I'm using FortiLink to manage the AP/Switch gear. The dashboards on FortiAP/FortiSwitch Cloud are pretty cool when I seen a demo of them and offer much more information/reports .... but my question is can you utilize FortiAP Cloud and FortiSwitch Cloud when using FortiLink managed devices (assuming I had licenses)?
I'm looking at a way to completely do everything cloud based but maintain the benefits of FortiLink. Thank you.
