Notes

Note

  • Different selector may have different parameters, users are expected to look up them for a specific selector.

  • For some selectors, the objects are global, no params are allowed to appear.

  • Not all parameters are required for a slector.

  • This module is exclusivly for FortiOS monitor API.

  • The result of API request is stored in results.
