By setting this property to 'Yes', the Database name, Web root, Deploy Virtual DirectoryDeploy Server URL, and Services URL properties are automatically set with default values to deploy the application to the GeneXus cloud. Once the application is run, it is deployed to the GeneXus cloud.


The GAM repository and application are also deployed to the cloud. This means that the GAM database will be automatically created in the cloud.
