FortiGate Transparent Mode and FortiGuard Update

I have installed a FortiGate in Transparent mode, I'm using a reserved ha interface for management.
I need to know how to access to the internet for fortiguard updates using the mgmt interface (port 3 in this case)
FGT-1 (ha-mgmt-interfaces) # edit 1

FGT-1 (1) # get
id                  : 1
interface           : port3
dst                 :
gateway             :
gateway6            : ::
the ping to outside network like for example does not work.
I don't know how to instruct FW to use the port 3 as egress interface.
I don't find documentation for similar setup.
please help!

    What did you set up for the manageip in the global settings?
    config system settings
        set opmode trans
        set manageip x.x.x.x/24
        set gateway a.b.c.d
    That address is what's used for fortiguard updates. Can you ping fortiguard from that address ? have you allowed the require services thru any upstream device 
    ( these should be anycast address )
    execute ping
    execute ping
