Sequence number (Seq#) field: where is it?


In my FortiGate firewall GUI (they are all running version 6.x), each policy rule has an ID field. But in some screenshots (mostly of firewalls running older software versions) I have seen the possibility to display a "Seq.#" (sequence number) column too. E.g. there's a screenshot in this forum thread that has this Seq#:

However I can't seem to find that Seq# anywhere in the GUI.

How can one display this?

Have they removed this in version 6?

Welcome to the forums.


Right click on the top bar with ID, Source, Destination. etc. A drop down will appear and in there you can select what appears in the top header.

Thanks Robert, but unfortunately the Seq# is not in that list.
