The Dashboard

See What's Going On

The dashboard is the central place that shows you the current active routes handled by Traefik.

Dashboard - Providers
The dashboard in action

The dashboard is available at the same location as the API but on the path /dashboard/ by default.

The trailing slash / in /dashboard/ is mandatory

There are 2 ways to configure and access the dashboard:

There is also a redirect of the path / to the path /dashboard/, but one should not rely on that property as it is bound to change, and it might make for confusing routing rules anyway.

Secure Mode

This is the recommended method.

Start by enabling the dashboard by using the following option from Traefik's API:

[api]
  # Dashboard
  #
  # Optional
  # Default: true
  #
  dashboard = true
api:
  # Dashboard
  #
  # Optional
  # Default: true
  #
  dashboard: true
# Dashboard
#
# Optional
# Default: true
#
--api.dashboard=true

Then specify a router associated to the service [email protected] to allow:

Please visit the "Configuration" section of the API documentation to learn about configuring a router with the service [email protected] and enabling the security features.

Insecure Mode

This mode is not recommended because it does not allow the use of security features.

To enable the "insecure mode", use the following options from Traefik's API:

[api]
  dashboard = true
  insecure = true
api:
  dashboard: true
  insecure: true
--api.dashboard=true --api.insecure=true

You can now access the dashboard on the port 8080 of the Traefik instance, at the following URL: http://<Traefik IP>:8080/dashboard/ (trailing slash is mandatory).
