The  "GAM Backend" is a GAM Application defined automatically with the creation of the GAM metadata, during the initialization process (for more information about this process see Creating the GAM repository for the first time from GeneXus).

The purpose of the "GAM Backend" Application is to group a set of permissions related to some resources (1) of the GAM Examples. They are:

  • gamexamplechangerepository (gamexamplechangerepository_Execute)
  • gamexamplechangeyourpassword (gamexamplechangeyourpassword_Execute)
  • gamexamplewwapplications (gamexamplewwapplications_Execute)
  • gamexamplewwauthtypes (gamexamplewwauthtypes_Execute)
  • gamexamplewwconnections (gamexamplewwconnections_Execute)
  • gamexamplewwroles (gamexamplewwroles_Execute)
  • gamexamplewwsecuritypolicies (gamexamplewwsecuritypolicies_Execute)
  • gamexamplewwusers (gamexamplewwusers_Execute)
  • gamrepositoryconfiguration (gamrepositoryconfiguration_Execute)

The main purpose for grouping these permissions is to be able to build the Menu of the GAM Backoffice in a dynamic way, using the  Action Group for the Web control.
