Hi Brian, thanks for the feedbacks.
>Is there a way to associate an alias with a fortiswitch serial number?
Yes, in 6.2.0 GA you can modify the FSW's name from FGT GUI (see attached). Is this what you are looking for?
>The managed switch controller GUI is great but it is slow (6.2). Modifying port vlans, etc. is just too time consuming in the GUI.
Can you give a more specific examples of the steps? Which part is slow? Some screenshot would be great.
>From the cli, when I edit a switch via the switch controller, I edit then tab and it autocompletes using the switch serial number.
The CLI usecase is different but not sure where on the GUI would you expect to have a similar functionality?
> Can I alias a serial number to a name like “switch1”?
Yes, you can edit the FSW from FGT GUI > Managed FSW and add a name for it there.
