Create site-to-site VPN with FortiGate to Microsoft Azure

I know, it is an unsupported configuration to create a site-to-site VPN to Microsoft Azure with a FortiGate firewall. But a FortiGate device is what i have and only to run some test’s I don’t want to buy some of this expensive supported firewalls.
