Administrator User Name property

Official Content
This documentation is valid for:

It allows establishing a default privileged user to access an application that has Enable Integrated Security property set to True.

Inside GeneXus, the administrator user is checked before performing the tasks related to the GAM - Applications registration, and GAM - Permissions generation in the F5 process. 

A default administrator user is created during the GAM - Activation Process, to facilitate the prototyping phase. The administrator user is granted all the permissions available for all the GAM Applications of the KB.

Changing the properties Administrator User Name and Administrator User Password property after the GAM database has been initialized, will not force the creation of a new user or the change of its password. The property is only for initialization purposes.


It has a default value: "admin", for prototyping purposes. It's a user defined to facilitate the developing stages of the application.


  • To change the Administrator password, you should run GAM Backoffice and change the password as desired. 
  • In case that you delete this user or define another one, you should change the Administrator User Name property.

Remember that this user is only for developing purposes, and has default values to facilitate prototyping, but it exists as a real administrator user in GAM database, so it's advisable to change its password before the application goes into production.
