Administrator User Name property

Official Content
This documentation is valid for:
Establishes a default privileged user in order to access an application with Enable Integrated Security property set to True.


Level: Environment


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

A default administrator user is created during the Activation Process to facilitate the prototyping stage. The administrator user is granted all the permissions available for all GAM Applications in the KB.

Changing the properties Administrator User Name and Administrator User Password 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.

This property has a default value—"admin"—for prototyping purposes. This user is defined to facilitate the developing stages of the application.


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

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