Kubernetes Dashboard :

Dashboard is a web-based Kubernetes user interface. You can use Dashboard to deploy containerized applications to a Kubernetes cluster, troubleshoot your containerized application,
  • Setting up the dash board:

  • Create user to access dashboard. We will create user using RABC for default namespace access.
Create RABC yaml and apply it.
apiVersion: v1

kind: ServiceAccount


  name: admin-user

  namespace: default



kind: ClusterRoleBinding


  name: admin-user



  kind: ClusterRole

  name: cluster-admin


- kind: ServiceAccount

  name: admin-user

  namespace: default
Save it and apply.
$ kubectl apply -f user-rabc.yaml

  • Access kubernetes dashboard :
$ kubectl proxy
