Accessing Kubeflow UIs

Version v0.3 of the documentation is no longer actively maintained. The site that you are currently viewing is an archived snapshot. For up-to-date documentation, see the latest version.

Kubeflow includes a number of different web UIs. This document provides instructions for how to connect to them.

Accessing Kubeflow Web UIs

Kubeflow comes with a number of web UIs e.g.

  • Argo UI
  • Central UI for navigation
  • JupyterHub
  • Katib
  • TFJobs Dashboard

To make it easy to connect to these UIs Kubeflow provides a reverse proxy through which all UIs are accessible.

Instructions below indicate how to connect to the Kubeflow navigation UI. From there you can easily navigate to the different services. The UI looks like this:

Central UI

Google Cloud Platform (Kubernetes Engine)

If you followed the guide for Kubernetes Engine, Kubeflow will be deployed with IAP and the web UIs will be accessible at


This will bring up a central navigation window that allows you to navigate to the different services.

Using Kubectl and port-forwarding

You can use the following command to setup port forwarding to one of the Ambassador pods that provides the reverse proxy.

export NAMESPACE=kubeflow
kubectl port-forward -n ${NAMESPACE}  `kubectl get pods -n ${NAMESPACE} --selector=service=ambassador -o jsonpath='{.items[0]}'` 8080:80

You can then access the central navigation dashboard at


From here you can easily navigate to the different services.
