Identifies the Web GAM Application GUID of the KB in GeneXus Access Manager security module.


Level: Version


The information is used when permissions are checked in runtime.

In F5 process, the "Application ID" information is copied to application.gam file (located in the virtual directory). See GAM - Applications Registration option for details on this process. 

Only one web GAM Application can be specified for each KB. Nevertheless, there can exist many Web GAM Applications in a repository (see links below for more information).

When running a web application, GeneXus Access Manager checks that this application (identified by the Application ID) is defined within the repository where the user is connected to.

Because application.gam file stores the information of only one Web GAM Application, one physical web app is associated to one Web Application. So GAM retrieves the Application ID information and that is going to be used when permissions are checked. The permissions have to be defined for the Applications retrieved in application.gam file. 

Note: For Native Mobile Applications, the Client Application data (Client Id and Client Secret information) of the Applications is used to implement the security mechanism using OAuth.
