Administration account is different from other user accounts. This account is not used to implement any search or analysis, but manage other users' account, including to create new user, enable or disable users, update user information and so on.

Each instance of IP2 has at least one administration account. The administrator can login by entering the username and password. After logged in the account, we can see the navigation bar is different from the one for common users, in figure 3.4.
