Failover BOVPN in WG-cloud

Do you plan on allowing failover/redundant GW in BOVPN for WG-cloud.
Let's say you have two ISPs on your main FW at HQ that is locally managed.
Then you have a second site which your are implementing a cloud-managed firebox that want to utilize the VPN-failover.
This feauture would be highly appreciated.
It's something we use all the time and is working great on locally managed fireboxes.

    Hi @olliesam

    There are several efforts to bring this to cloud managed VPNs.

    -Is this for a VPN to another WG or Third Party device?
    -Are both sides cloud managed, or just one?
    -Is the distant side managed by a WatchGuard Management Server?

    With that info, I can find the correct feature request for you with that info, if you would like that ID number for it.

    Hi James and thanks for your reply!

    Site A:
    2 ISPs
    M470-Cluster locally managed

    Site B:
    1 ISP
    T40 Cloud-managed

    No Management Server is being used.

    Is there a way to get failover BOVPN without the need of either converting the T20 to local management or converting the M470-cluster to cloud-management (this is a pain at the moment due to extensive config).

    @OlleSam There is an open feature request for this -- FCCM-4628
    At this current point in time, you can only define one gateway endpoint for the VPNs to 3rd party/locally managed devices.

    If you'd like to follow that request, please create a support case and mention FCCM-4628 somewhere in the case. The tech assigned the case can set that up for you.
