How to interact with provisioned applications

Once deploying a stack following here, you will see the following applications under the Provision Application panel. Those are components included in the Data Flow Platform.
  • Amazon EKS Console
  • Grafana Dashboard
  • Kafka Topics UI
  • Kibana Dashboard
  • Kubernetes Dashboard
  • StreamSets Data Collector Console
Each application can be accessed by clicking the application link.

Amazon EKS Console
The link of Amazon EKS Console will lead you to the Amazon EKS instance of the stack on the ECS console (after logging into AWS). This EKS instance was created and configured according to your configuration settings on AWS and the K8S component of the stack you deployed.

Grafana Dashboard
The link to the Grafana Dashboard will lead you to the Grafana login page. You can log in with the Grafana default admin account credential (UserID: admin, Password: admin). You can optionally change the admin account credential during the first login. Once logged into Grafana, you will see the Grafana Home page where you can use the full feature of Grafana, such as creating a Dashboard, etc. Refer to Grafana documentation for detail.
Grafana is already configured with the Data Source to Elasticsearch indexes for Filebeat and Metricbeat, where you can examine Observability metrics and logging of stack components. Also, you can create custom alerts for notifications based on observability data.

Kafka Topics UI
The link of Kafka Topics UI will lead to the Kafka dashboard, where you can browse the configuration of Kafka brokers, topics, partitions, and Kafka messages on the topic. Refer to Kafka Topics UI document for detail.
Kibana Dashboard
The link to the Kibana Dashboard will lead to the Elastic Kibana dashboard. You can observe the provisioned application behavior. For example, you can observe the Kubernetes cluster behavior on the dashboard of Kubernetes. Go to the Dashboard panel, and type "Kubernetes" on the Search box. Select the [Metricbeat Kubernetes] Overview ECS link. You will see the detailed metrics of Kubernetes. See the Elastic Observability document for detail.
Also, you can monitor the Elastic Stack itself. Click the "Stack Monitoring" menu on the left panel. 

Kubernetes Dashboard
The link of the Kibana Dashboard will lead to a web-based Kubernetes user interface. You can use Dashboard to deploy your applications to a Kubernetes cluster, troubleshoot your containerized application, and manage the cluster resources. You can use Dashboard to get an overview of applications running on your cluster, as well as for creating or modifying individual Kubernetes resources (such as Deployments, Jobs, DaemonSets, etc.). For example, you can scale a Deployment, initiate a rolling update, restart a pod or deploy new applications using a deploy wizard. The dashboard also provides information on the state of Kubernetes resources in your cluster and on any errors that may have occurred. See Kubernetes Web UI Dashboard for details.
To access Kibana Dashboard, you need to copy the Kubernetes Token from the Provision Applications panel and paste it into the Kubernetes authentication panel. 

StreamSets Data Collector Console
The link of StreamSets Data Collector Console will lead you to the StreamSets Data Collector dashboard. Sign in with the default admin account credential (admin/admin). You create a new pipeline to create your data ingestion system, for example. Refer to the StreamSets Data Collector document for detail.
