Hello @Gsing

 

Please see the following KB article: Technical Tip: Programming a daily restart (reboot... - Fortinet Community 

Also, please take note of the fact that this is a repeated reboot, and it can be used for a one-time reboot at a predefined hour (with the mention that it needs to be removed afterwards).

 

Hope it helps.

Use a scheduled Automation Stitch. Set the trigger to a new condition (schedule, to execute once at X date and Y time) and the action to Reboot FortiGate. Much easier than creating a daily reboot and then remembering to then remove the reboot after the first execution.
