The administration account is different from other user accounts. This account is not for data analysis. It is used to manage user accounts in your IP2 server, including creating new users, enabling or disabling users, and updating user information.
Each instance of IP2 has at least one administration account. The administrator logs in by entering the username and password like a regular user. However, after logging in the administrator has a different navigation bar compared to regular users.

To view the list of all existing accounts, the administrator can click the link “View Users,” and will see a listing similar to the sample shown below:

The administrator must click the “Enabled” check box under Account Settings in order to enable and activate this account. By default, this option is selected.
After a user account is added, the Current Users page will update with the new user information. In the example below, the new user account “DemoUsr” has been added and now shows in the current user listing.

By clicking any user in the list, the administrator can modify or delete that user.
