If RBAC is not enabled access the dashboard using the default token retrieved with:

token=$(microk8s kubectl -n kube-system get secret | grep default-token | cut -d " " -f1)
microk8s kubectl -n kube-system describe secret $token

In an RBAC enabled setup (microk8s enable RBAC) you need to create a user with restricted
permissions as shown in:

Addon dns is already enabled.

# set port-forwarding to enable external access

# Prometheus UI

microk8s kubectl port-forward -n monitoring service/prometheus-k8s --address 9090:9090

Forwarding from -> 9090
# Grafana UI

microk8s kubectl port-forward -n monitoring service/grafana --address 3000:3000

Forwarding from -> 3000
