By default, you can log in to the UI in Kommander with the credentials given using this command:

dkp open dashboard
CODE

You can also retrieve your credentials at any time using the following command:

kubectl -n kommander get secret dkp-credentials -o go-template='Username: {{.data.username|base64decode}}{{ "\n"}}Password: {{.data.password|base64decode}}{{ "\n"}}'
CODE

You can also retrieve the URL used for accessing the UI using the following command:

kubectl -n kommander get svc kommander-traefik -o go-template='https://{{with index .status.loadBalancer.ingress 0}}{{or .hostname .ip}}{{end}}/dkp/kommander/dashboard{{ "\n"}}'
CODE

You should only use these static credentials to access the UI for configuring an external identity provider. Since there is no way to update static credentials, you should treat them as back up credentials and not use them for normal access. Always log in with your own identity from external identity providers that provide additional security features like Multi-Factor Authentication.

You can perform the following operations on Identity Providers:

  • Create an Identity Provider

  • Temporarily Disable an Identity Provider

  • Create Groups

Next Step

After installing Konvoy component and building a cluster as well as successfully installing Kommander and logging into the UI, you are now ready to customize configurations using the Day 2 Operations section of the documentation. This section allows you to manage cluster operations and their application workloads to optimize your organization’s productivity.
