Kubernetes Dashboard

Go Report Card Coverage Status GitHub release License


Kubernetes Dashboard is a general purpose, web-based UI for Kubernetes clusters. It allows users to manage applications running in the cluster and troubleshoot them, as well as manage the cluster itself.

Dashboard UI workloads page

Getting Started

IMPORTANT: Read the Access Control guide before performing any further steps. The default Dashboard deployment contains a minimal set of RBAC privileges needed to run.


Kubernetes Dashboard supports both Helm and Manifest-based installation. Since release v3.0.0 using Helm Chart should be faster and simpler in general as it will install dependencies such as cert-manager, nginx-ingress-controller and metrics-server for you. In case you are using different software to handle certificates, ingress/egress traffic, etc. it is possible to disable those dependencies by overriding helm chart values.


You can install Dashboard using Helm as described here.


You can install Dashboard using kubectl as described in the installation instructions that can be found in the latest release.


You can access Dashboard as described in the instructions that can be found in the access guide.

Create An Authentication Token (RBAC)

To find out how to create sample user and log in follow Creating sample user guide.


  • Kubeconfig Authentication method does not support external identity providers or certificate-based authentication.
  • Metrics-Server has to be running in the cluster for the metrics and graphs to be available. Read more about it in Integrations guide.


Dashboard documentation can be found on docs directory which contains:
