The “Hello Node Kubernetes” lab went up until the point where I was supposed to browse to UI. I was required to provide the Kubernetes Dashboard Token
The lab says to run the gcloud container clusters get-credentials command and then to start the proxy kubectl proxy –port 8081 after which you should be able to access the Kubernetes Dashboard UI at https://<YOUR_SPECIFIC_URL>.appspot.com/ui,
However, instead of getting the actual UI I was presented with a “Login” screen.
I am not sure whether I did something wrong or not, but you can overcome this by providing the Token.
In order to get the token open a new Cloud Shell tab and run the following command cat /home/google244648_student/.kube/config | grep access-token (of course replace with your user’s home directory)
You will see an output similar to the below
Copy the everything after “access-token: ” and paste it into the Kubernetes UI “Login” screen (don’t forget to select “Token” as the login method)
