kubedash 1.0

Page content

Today I am happy to announce the release of KubeDash 1.0. This blog post focuses on the functionality provided by the KubeDash 1.0.

What is KubeDash?

KubeDash is a general purpose, web-based UI for Kubernetes clusters. It allows users to observe applications running in the cluster and troubleshoot them, as well as manage the cluster itself. It supports OpenID Connect Tokens as a way to identify users who access the cluster


The Default user is admin / admin




You can watch the installed helm charts:



To ease deployment I created a helm chart for trivy-operator.

helm repo add devopstales https://devopstales.github.io/helm-charts
helm repo update
helm upgrade --install kubedash devopstales/kubedash

Create a value file for deploy:

TimeZone: "CET"
logLevel: "INFO"
flaskConfig: "production" #or development

  create: true
  name: "kubedash-admin"

  repository: devopstales/kubedash
  tag: 0.1
  pullPolicy: Always

  runAsNonRoot: true
  runAsUser: 10001

  allowPrivilegeEscalation: false
    drop: ["all"]

  enabled: true
  url: "kubedash.mydomain.intra"
    nginx.ingress.kubernetes.io/proxy-body-size: "10m"
    kubernetes.io/ingress.class: nginx
    enabled: true
    tlsSecret: "mycert-tls"
      enabled: false
      clusterIssuer: "letsencrypt"
    enabled: false
    ips: []

  enabled: false
