Device Folders

In WatchGuard Cloud, you can create up to ten levels of folders to organize your Fireboxes. Each folder can contain Fireboxes, folders, or both. Folders help you to see status and summarized data for groups of Fireboxes.

For example, if you have Fireboxes at several geographic locations, you can create a folder for each location. This enables you to open the folder to see just the Fireboxes at that location, and to see summary status and aggregated reports for those Fireboxes.

Configure Page

When you select a folder on the Configure page, the right side of the window shows a list of Fireboxes in the folder with their current logging setting, serial number, and Fireware OS version. To configure settings for a Firebox, click the Firebox name.
