Administrator User Password property

Official Content
This documentation is valid for:
Enables configuring the password for the Administrator User Name to access an application that has Enable Integrated Security property set to Yes.


Level: Environment


For prototyping purposes, the default value is admin123.


The purpose of the Administrator User Name property is to facilitate prototyping. It's created only at GAM database initialization (when Enable Integrated Security property is first checked).

Changing the properties Administrator User Name property 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, as the property is only for initialization purposes.

All GeneXus applications are registered by this user, in order to run within F5. So,

  • In order to change the Administrator password, you should run GAM Backoffice and change the password as desired. This change will not affect GeneXus F5 so you don´t need to change Administrator User Password property.
  • In case you delete this user in Web Backoffice, or define another one, you should change the Administrator User Name property so GeneXus Dashboards will be registered with this new user you have defined.

Remember that the Administrator User is only for developing purposes, and has default values to facilitate prototyping (admin / admin123), but it exists as a real administrator user in the GAM database, so the recommendation is to change its password.
