Apache superset


This chart is deprecated and no longer supported.


This chart bootstraps an Apache superset deployment on a Kubernetes cluster using the Helm package manager.


$ helm install stable/superset


  • Kubernetes 1.9+ with Beta APIs enabled
  • PV provisioner support in the underlying infrastructure (Only when persisting data)

Installing the Chart

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

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

The command deploys Superset 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.

Init script

There is a script ( which is called at the entrypoint of the container. It initialzes the db and creates an user account. You can configure the content with initFile. E.g. in order to change admin password and load examples:

initFile: |-
  /usr/local/bin/superset-init --username admin --firstname myfirstname --lastname mylastname --email --password mypassword
  superset load_examples
  superset runserver


The superset image mounts the SQLite DB file (superset.db) on path /var/lib/superset. The chart mounts a Persistent Volume at this location. The volume is created using dynamic volume provisioning. If the PersistentVolumeClaim should not be managed by the chart, define persistence.existingClaim.

Existing PersistentVolumeClaims

  1. Create the PersistentVolumeClaim with name superset-pvc in the same namespace
  2. Install the chart
$ helm install --set persistence.enabled=true,persistence.existingClaim=superset-pvc stable/superset
