Traffic shaping (5.6.3)

Support schedule on traffic shaping policy (450337)

In FortiOS 5.6, a new traffic "shaping-policy" feature was added, but it lacked the ability to apply different shaping profiles at different times. This feature addresses this issue by adding a "schedule" attribute to the shaping policy.

This feature is currently only available via the CLI, and you can use this feature to apply a reoccurring schedule to your traffic shaping policies. The default recurring schedule options available are always or none. You can also create new schedules or schedule groups under Policy & Objects > Schedules. This allows you to create custom recurring or one-time schedules that can then be applied to your traffic shaping policies using the commands below.


config firewall shaping-policy

edit <shaping policy ID>

set schedule {always | none}
