fortios_wireless_controller_ble_profile – Configure Bluetooth Low Energy profile in Fortinet’s FortiOS and FortiGate.

New in version 2.0.0.


  • This module is able to configure a FortiGate or FortiOS (FOS) device by allowing the user to set and modify wireless_controller feature and ble_profile category. Examples include all parameters and values need to be adjusted to datasources before usage. Tested with FOS v6.0.0


The below requirements are needed on the host that executes this module.

  • ansible>=2.14


Using member operation to add an element to an existing object.
