accounts generated in the AD

friends good day One question: is it possible to create administrator accounts generated in the active directory in fortigate, fortimanager, fortianalyzer?

We have administrator accounts created in the same fortigate, fortimanager and fortianalyzer but for reasons of insurance we require that these be created in the AD

I found this KB https://community.fortinet.com/t5/FortiGate/Technical-tip-How-to-create-administrators-which-can-be/...

Hi, most probably you should add remote ldap server everywhere in your devices, and add from there remote admin accounts, which will match to LDAP accounts.

you can configure the LDAP in Fortimanager -> Policy & Objects -> User & Authentication -> LDAP server.

* Make sure that the LDAP server name is the same in all the firewalls, then you can do a per-device-mapping
