View the current Kubernetes admin password

kubectl config view


Change the password

Update the password in this file (it’s the first value):



Execute the following command:

kubectl config set-credentials admin --password=new_password

Note:  Replace “new_password” with the new password that you have set in the basic_auth.csv file.


Restart the API server:

sudo systemctl restart snap.microk8s.daemon-apiserver


You can use the new password to log in to the Kubernetes dashboard.
