Using the Bookmarks widget

The Bookmarks widget shows both administrator-configured and user-configured bookmarks. Administrator bookmarks cannot be altered but you can add, edit or delete user bookmarks.

The FortiGate unit forwards client requests to servers on the Internet or internal network. To use the web-portal applications, you add the URL, IP address, or name of the server application to the My Bookmarks list. For more information, see Adding bookmarks.

note icon If you want to access a web server or telnet server without first adding a bookmark to the My Bookmarks list, use the Connection Tool instead. For more information, see Using the Bookmarks widget.

Adding bookmarks

You can add frequently used connections as bookmarks. Afterward, select any hyperlink from the Bookmarks list to initiate a session.

To add a bookmark
  1. In the web portal, select New Bookmark.
  2. Enter the following information:
Name Enter the name to display in the Bookmarks list.
Type Select the abbreviated name of the server application or network service from the drop-down list.
Location Enter the IP address or FQDN of the server application or network service.

For RDP connections, you can append some parameters to control screen size and keyboard layout. See Using the Bookmarks widget.
Description Optionally enter a short description. The description displays when you pause the mouse pointer over the hyperlink.
SSO Single Sign On (SSO) is available for HTTP/HTTPS bookmarks only.

Disabled — This is not an SSO bookmark.

Automatic — Use your SSL VPN credentials or an alternate set. See the SSO Credentials field.

Static — Supply credentials and other required information (such as an account number) to a web site that uses an HTML form for authentication. You provide a list of the form field names and the values to enter into them. This method does not work for sites that use HTTP authentication, in which the browser opens a pop-up dialog box requesting credentials.
