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.


$ helm install stable/kubernetes-dashboard


This chart bootstraps a Kubernetes Dashboard deployment on a Kubernetes cluster using the Helm package manager.

Installing the Chart

To install the chart with the release name my-release:

$ helm install stable/kubernetes-dashboard --name my-release

The command deploys kubernetes-dashboard on the Kubernetes cluster in the default configuration. The configuration section lists the parameters that can be configured during installation.

Uninstalling the Chart

To uninstall/delete the my-release deployment:

$ helm delete my-release

The command removes all the Kubernetes components associated with the chart and deletes the release.

Access control

It is critical for the Kubernetes cluster to correctly setup access control of Kubernetes Dashboard. See this guide for best practises.

It is highly recommended to use RBAC with minimal privileges needed for Dashboard to run.


The following table lists the configurable parameters of the kubernetes-dashboard chart and their default values.

Parameter Description Default
image.repository Repository for container image
image.tag Image tag v1.10.0
image.pullPolicy Image pull policy IfNotPresent
replicaCount Number of replicas 1
extraArgs Additional container arguments []
nodeSelector node labels for pod assignment {}
tolerations List of node taints to tolerate (requires Kubernetes >= 1.6) []
affinity Affinity for pod assignment []
service.externalPort Dashboard external port 443
service.internalPort Dashboard internal port 443
ingress.annotations Specify ingress class nginx
ingress.enabled Enable ingress controller resource false
ingress.path Path to match against incoming requests. Must begin with a ‘/’ /
ingress.hosts Dashboard Hostnames nil
ingress.tls Ingress TLS configuration []
resources Pod resource requests & limits limits: {cpu: 100m, memory: 100Mi}, requests: {cpu: 100m, memory: 100Mi}
rbac.create Create & use RBAC resources true
rbac.clusterAdminRole “cluster-admin” ClusterRole will be used for dashboard ServiceAccount (NOT RECOMMENDED) false
serviceAccount.create Whether a new service account name that the agent will use should be created. true Service account to be used. If not set and serviceAccount.create is true a name is generated using the fullname template.
livenessProbe.initialDelaySeconds Number of seconds to wait before sending first probe 30
livenessProbe.timeoutSeconds Number of seconds to wait for probe response 30

Specify each parameter using the --set key=value[,key=value] argument to helm install. For example,

$ helm install stable/kubernetes-dashboard --name my-release \

Alternatively, a YAML file that specifies the values for the above parameters can be provided while installing the chart. For example,

$ helm install stable/kubernetes-dashboard --name my-release -f values.yaml

Tip: You can use the default values.yaml

Using the dashboard with ‘kubectl proxy’

When running ‘kubectl proxy’, the address localhost:8001/ui automatically expands to http://localhost:8001/api/v1/namespaces/kube-system/services/https:kubernetes-dashboard:/proxy/. For this to reach the dashboard, the name of the service must be ‘kubernetes-dashboard’, not any other value as set by Helm. You can manually specify this using the value ‘fullnameOverride’:

fullnameOverride: 'kubernetes-dashboard'
