Trying to monitor Fortigate via SNMP



I am trying to monitor Fortigate interfaces however they are not getting discovered.

I can use SNMP Tester using SNMP v3 to query the device and it shows all the interfaces, however PRTG gives an error when trying to add a sensor of SNMPERR_BAD_SEC_NAME (SNMP error # -27).

Please help.
