string
    Choices:
  • enable
  • disable
Enable/disable the wireless controller feature to use the FortiGate unit to manage FortiAPs.
wireless_controller_port
integer
Port used for the control channel in wireless controller mode (wireless-mode is ac). The data channel port is the control channel port number plus one (1024 - 49150).
username
string
FortiOS or FortiGate username.
vdom
string
Default:
"root"
Virtual domain, among those defined previously. A vdom is a virtual instance of the FortiGate that can be configured and used as a different unit.
