FortiGate Config Version Number

If a configuration file is restored from backup, is there an API command available which displays the current config file version running?  The text below is visible in the first few lines of the backup file, trying to find a way to compare the same value is applied after restore for configuration management.

 

#config-version=FGVMK6-7.2.5-FW-build1517-111111:opmode=0:vdom=0:user=admin
#conf_file_ver=58388916466111111
#buildno=8369
#global_vdom=1

Hello @olseri36 ,

 

You can learn the version number from API with this call. 

 

https://x.x.x.x/api/v2/monitor/system/firmware?access_token=<YOUR_API_KEY>&vdom=root

 

If you want to get more information about API, you can review this article.

Hi @ozkanaltasm,

 

I see the firmware API provides info about the software/firmware version running, but I do not see anything about configuration file version running.  Is there a different API which provides this info?

Hi @olseri36 ,

 

I'm sorry for the misunderstanding. I understand that you are looking for how to find out the firmware version from the API.

 

I did review the API documentation again. But I didn't find anything about this. I think you can't get this information from API. Also, there is no option on GUI or CLI for this request.
