Enables password configuration for the Administrator User Name in order to access an application with the 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 the Enable Integrated Security property is first checked).

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 because they are only for initialization purposes.

All GeneXus applications are registered by this user in order to run within F5. Therefore:

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

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