Hello MD1,

 

You should find the answer into this document:

Hey MD1,

you can have your EMS essentially generate one via Let's Encrypt:
https://docs.fortinet.com/document/forticlient/7.0.2/ems-administration-guide/917193

This is only possible if:
- EMS is publicly reachable
- its hostname that you provide during creation resolves to the public IP the EMS is reachable at

 

If Let's Encrypt is not an option, you will need to generate a server certificate manually and then upload it to the EMS application.
