Enable Integrated Security property

Official Content
This documentation is valid for:
Establishes whether the generated application will manage security using GeneXus Access Manager.




Level: Version


This is a version-level property.

Default value: False

If security is enabled, the following considerations should be taken into account:

  • A new data store will be created, named GAM. The default DBMS for GAM data store is the same DBMS as the reorg data store. The reorg data store connection properties will be inherited by the GAM data store also. In case of SQL Server, GAM database will be the same as the reorg data store, with a different Database Schema (named "gam").
    In case of Mysql, the database name of GAM data store will be <reorg_datastore_dbname>_gam (as it doesn't support database schemas). In case of Oracle and Informix database, GeneXus does not set any default value for Database Name, the user has to set this value.
  • GeneXus will start to create Permissions (according to the value of the Integrated Security Level Property).
  • The generated code will start to interact with GeneXus Access Manager in order to solve Authentication and Authorization issues.
  • A set of external objects (GAM API) and objects which are part of GAM Examples Library folder are imported in the knowledge base.

See GAM - Activation Process for more details on this topic.
