Hi systemgeek,

 

Authentication Servers under Administration allows you to import Endpoints from different integration options:

These are listed here:

https://docs.fortinet.com/document/forticlient/7.2.4/ems-administration-guide/581579/authentication-...

 

The SAML user config is used when you want users to access EMS acting as SP while having their credentials validated by a third party IDP.
