When you create a Kubernetes cluster, VMware Integrated OpenStack with Kubernetes installs a Kubernetes dashboard and Heapster

To access the Kubernetes dashboard for your Kubernetes cluster, find the endpoint for your cluster. In your browser, type <endpoint_IP>/ui, for example https://192.168.112.194:443/ui.

You can also access the Kubernetes dashboard directly from the VMware Integrated OpenStack with Kubernetes interface.

Procedure

  1. On the cluster list view, click the URL under cluster name.
  2. On the cluster detail view, click the Dashboard icon on top right.
  3. When prompted for authentication, enter the username and password.
    • For an Exclusive Cluster, any user can use the Kubernetes dashboard.

    • For a Shared Cluster, only the admin user can use the Kubernetes dashboard.

Results

The Kubernetes dashboard displays resources available to the whole cluster such as namespaces and nodes. It also displays resources available to a namespace such as deployments and pods. If you specify app details or upload a YAML or JSON file, you can deploy a Containerized App.
