Pivotal Container Service v1.3

Accessing Dashboard

This topic describes how to access Dashboard, a web-based Kubernetes user interface, for your Pivotal Container Service (PKS) deployment.


You can use Dashboard to deploy containerized applications to a Kubernetes cluster, troubleshoot containerized apps, manage the cluster and its resources, initiate rolling updates, and restart pods. 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.

Access Dashboard

To access Dashboard, navigate to http://localhost:8001/api/v1/namespaces/kube-system/services/https:kubernetes-dashboard:/proxy/ in a browser.

Use Dashboard

For information on how to use Dashboard, see the Web UI (Dashboard) topic of the Kubernetes documentation.
