When you install the Zoomdata Server, a default company account is created. The 'Company' account is the default Zoomdata account where Administrators may connect data sources and administer Zoomdata. As a supervisor, you can create accounts and Administrator roles to manage those accounts. Each account may have multiple Administrator roles set or you may set one Administrator to manage all accounts in your environment. By default, the Administrator role for supervisors is disabled. To enable the Administrator role for your environment as a supervisor, see Configuring Server-Level Variables.
