The Admin Panel is a place where the Kubermatic administrators can manage the global settings that
impact all Kubermatic users directly. Admin rights can be granted from the admin panel itself and also from the kubectl by
spec.admin field of the user object to
$ kubectl get user -o=custom-columns=INTERNAL_NAME:.metadata.name,NAME:.spec.name,EMAIL:.spec.email,ADMIN:.spec.admin $ kubectl edit user ...
After logging in to the dashboard as an administrator, you should be able to access the admin panel from the menu up top.
Global settings can also be modified from the command line with kubectl. It can be done by editing the
KubermaticSetting CRD. This resource has the following structure:
apiVersion: kubermatic.k8s.io/v1 kind: KubermaticSetting metadata: name: globalsettings ... spec: cleanupOptions: Enabled: true Enforced: false clusterTypeOptions: 0 customLinks: - icon: "" label: Twitter location: footer url: https://www.twitter.com/kubermatic - icon: "" label: GitHub location: footer url: https://github.com/kubermatic - icon: "" label: Slack location: footer url: http://slack.kubermatic.io/ defaultNodeCount: 1 displayAPIDocs: true displayDemoInfo: false displayTermsOfService: true enableDashboard: true enableExternalClusterImport: true enableOIDCKubeconfig: false machineDeploymentVMResourceQuota: enableGPU: true maxCPU: 8 maxRAM: 64 minCPU: 1 minRAM: 2 restrictProjectCreation: false userProjectsLimit: 0
It can be edited directly from the command line:

The below global settings are managed via UI:
Control the way custom links are displayed in the Kubermatic Dashboard. Choose the place that suits you best, whether it is a sidebar, footer or a help & support panel.
Control number of initial Machine Deployment replicas, cluster deletion cleanup settings, availability of Kubernetes Dashboard for user clusters and more.
Use number of filtering options to find and control existing dynamic datacenters or simply create a new one.
Manage all Kubermatic Dashboard Administrator in a single place. Decide who should be granted or revoked an administrator privileges.
Prepare custom provider presets for a variety of use cases. Control which presets will be visible to the users down to the per-provider level.
