Generate Configuration Reports for Managed Devices

From your WatchGuard Management Server, you can generate the Firebox Configuration Report for any of your managed devices. The Firebox Configuration Report includes a summary of the device configuration file settings for your Fireboxes in an easy-to-read, printable format.

The Firebox Configuration Report includes an overview of the contents of the configuration file for your managed devices. It can be a useful tool to review your security policy implementation with your organization’s management team. The Firebox Configuration Report includes information about most configuration settings.

The Firebox Configuration Report for a managed device is divided into six main sections:

  • Network — Network configuration settings
  • Firewall — Firewall policies and proxy action settings, traffic management, SNAT, quotas, Mobile Security, and other network settings
  • Subscription Services — Settings for all Subscription Services configured on the Firebox
  • Authentication — Authentication settings, hotspot settings, configured users and groups, Single Sign-On settings, and Terminal Services settings
  • VPN — Branch Office VPN and Mobile VPN settings
  • System — System configuration, aliases, logging, NTP, SNMP, logging, FireCluster and global settings

You can generate the Firebox Configuration Report for one or more managed devices from a device folder, for a single managed device, or from the Configuration History of any managed device. After you generate the Configuration Report, you can view the file, print the file for distribution, or open the folder where the .HTML file is saved.

Generate Configuration Reports

You can generate the Firebox Configuration Report for a single Firebox or for one or more Fireboxes in the same Device folder on your Management Server. You can also generate a Configuration Report for a configuration revision in the Configuration History for a managed device.

    Or, select Tools > Generate Configuration Report.
    The Configuration Report dialog box appears with the configuration report for the Firebox.

    The Configuration Report dialog box appears with a separate report for each Firebox you selected.

Generate a Report for a Device Configuration File Revision

To generate the Firebox Configuration Report for a revision of the device configuration file for a managed device:

  2. Expand the Devices tree and select a Firebox.
    The Device page appears for the selected Firebox.
  3. In the Configuration History section, click View History.
    The Configuration History dialog box appears.
  4. From the Revision list, select a revision of the configuration file.
  5. Click Configuration Report.
    The Configuration Report dialog box appears with the configuration report for the configuration file revision you selected.

The Configuration Report list includes these details for each Firebox:

  • Generated — Whether the report was successfully generated: Yes or No
  • Name — The friendly name (the device name) assigned to the Firebox
  • Model — The model of the Firebox
  • Version — The version of OS on the Firebox
  • Build Number — The build number of the OS version on the Firebox
  • Create Time — The time the report was generated

When the report is generated, the directory location of the report files and the file name for each generated report appear in the Server Status section. If you generated a report for more than one Firebox, the file name for each report appears in the list, but there is only one report directory location. You can view each report or open the report folder.
