I need a URL and the web UI log in credentials for Kubernetes. I created Kubernetes clusters in AWS with EKS. I have API endpoint URLs for the clusters based on what I see in the EKS section of the web UI of AWS. But when I go to them in a web browser, there is no prompt for a username or password.

I ran this command: "kubectl config view | grep http"

But when I go to those URLs I see "403 Forbidden" errors.

I expect a URL that would allow me to log in for the new Kubernetes clusters that I created. What should I do to determine the URLs? Hopefully the default credentials will be ascertainable.

With EKS, the Kubernetes UI need to be deploy manually. You have a fully detailed documentation on how to deploy Kubernetes UI in EKS.

  • I am having trouble following those directions. In Step #3 "Connect to the Dashboard" there is a substep, also #3, that I do not know how to follow. It says "Open the following link with a web browser to access the dashboard endpoint: localhost:8001/api/v1/namespaces/kube-system/services/…" localhost on my Windows laptop will resolve to The link will just say "Unable to connect" in the web browser. How do I connect to the dashboard?

  • I tried to use curl commands from the Linux server. I would get Forbidden or 404 errors. None of my variations got anywhere. I set up a reverse proxy server, but I do not know what the valid URL would be.
