How to access the Kubeflow Central Dashboard?

To access the Kubeflow central dashboard, you need to connect to the Istio Gateway that provides access to the Kubeflow service mesh. How you access the Istio gateway varies depending on how you’ve configured it.

Packaged Distributions

Each packaged distribution of Kubeflow will have its own way of accessing the central dashboard.

For more information, please see the documentation of the distribution you are using.

Raw Manifests

If you are using the default Kubeflow Manifests, you may access the Istio gateway with kubectl port-forwarding or another method.

kubectl port-forwarding

To access the central dashboard using kubectl port-forwarding:

  1. Install kubectl, if you haven’t already done so.

  2. Use the following command to set up port forwarding on your local machine:

    export ISTIO_NAMESPACE=istio-system
    kubectl port-forward svc/istio-ingressgateway -n ${ISTIO_NAMESPACE} 8080:80
  3. Open a browser and navigate to: http://localhost:8080

  4. If you have not changed the default username and password, you may log in with:

    • Username:
    • Password: 12341234
