Pivotal Container Service v1.0

Access the Dashboard

Dashboard is a web-based Kubernetes user interface. You can use Dashboard to deploy containerized applications to a Kubernetes cluster, troubleshoot containerized applications, and manage the cluster and its resources. Dashboard also provides information about the state of Kubernetes resources in the cluster.

You must have kubectl credentials to access Dashboard. This requirement prevents unauthorized admin access to the Kubernetes cluster through a browser.

Follow the steps below to access the Dashboard for a Kubernetes cluster.

  1. As a PKS operator or developer, you may already have access to kubectl credentials. If you do not, follow the instructions in Retrieve Cluster Credentials and Configuration.

  2. After retrieving kubectl credentials, run kubectl proxy on a command line. Do not exit or close the terminal.

  3. In a web browser, browse to http://localhost:8001/ui to access the Dashboard.
