A quick question that I thought was easy to figure out but I couldn't easily find an information about it:
What's the real meaning on the "wildcard" option in the Administrators Section on the FortiAnalyzer ?
Looking through the admin guide I couldn't find a definition nor a use case example. The only definition I found is in a FortiWeb product that says this:
Specifies whether the user-configured access profile in a remote authentication server overrides the access profile that is configured in FortiWeb.
This field is available only when Type is Remote User.
Is this supposed to be used while defining a remote group (with a remote authentication server) and defines that each users that log in as a user but that aren't directly defined in the FortiAnalyzer will inherit the rights of that user ?
If there is no explicit match of the username against admin account, then wildcard is used & username/password are passed right through to the remote auth server. Auth server will return the admin profile.
