Metabase is the easy, open source way for everyone in your company to ask questions and learn from data.


This chart is deprecated and no longer supported.


$ helm install stable/metabase


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


  • Kubernetes 1.4+ with Beta APIs enabled

Installing the Chart

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

$ helm install --name my-release stable/metabase

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

Tip: List all releases using helm list

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.


The following table lists the configurable parameters of the Metabase chart and their default values.

The above parameters map to the env variables defined in metabase. For more information please refer to the metabase documentations.

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

$ helm install --name my-release \
  --set timeZone=US/Pacific,password.complexity=strong,password.length=10 \

The above command sets the time zone to US/Pacific, strong user password complexity and minimum length at 10

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

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

Tip: You can use the default values.yaml
