Background information

If the external service is configured when you create the application, in addition to running containers, Kubernetes dashboard creates the external services for pre-assigning the Server Load Balancer to bring traffic to the containers in the cluster.


  1. Log on to the Container Service console.
  2. Click Kubernetes >Application > > Servicein the left-side navigation pane.
  3. Select the cluster and namespace from the Clusters and Namespace drop-down lists to view the deployed services.
    You can view the name, type, created time, cluster IP address, internal endpoint, and external endpoint of a service. In this example, you can view the external endpoint (IP address) assigned to the service. Click the IP address to access the Nginx welcome page.

    You can also enter the Kubernetes dashboard of the cluster and click Services in the left-side navigation pane to view the services.
