Fortigate config change

Hi everyone,

If my Fotigates are managed via a Fortimanager, but, someone made some change on the Fortigate itself, I see the device settings status: Modified - under Installation tracking. But, I cannot find out what changes have been made on the Fortigate. 

Is there a way to see it, please?


Thank you,

Welcome to the forums.


The brute force way would be to compare the backup you have in Fortimanager against the backup from the Fortigate itself in a text editor.

Bob - self proclaimed posting junkie!
See my Fortigate related scripts at:


As a follow up to Bob's post, if the Fortimanager stores config revisions for fgt devices, you may be able to see the config changes under Configuration and Installation Status->Total Revisions.


Similarly, the fgt device itself may store config revision, under System Information->System Configuration_>Revisons.  


In both cases, if config changes are not stored/retrieved automatically, you likely need to retrieve/save the current config.

thank you very much for your replies.

the Fortigate does not have revisions, they are only on the Fortimanager.

I guess the only way would be to compare them.


Thanks again.
