Run the following commands:

This command will create a service account for a dashboard in the default namespace

kubectl create serviceaccount dashboard -n default

Add the cluster binding rules to your dashboard account

kubectl create clusterrolebinding dashboard-admin -n default \ --clusterrole=cluster-admin \ --serviceaccount=default:dashboard

Copy the secret token required for your dashboard login using the below command:

kubectl get secret $(kubectl get serviceaccount dashboard -o jsonpath="{.secrets[0].name}") -o jsonpath="{.data.token}" | base64 --decode

For detailed explaination, follow the instructions on this blog.
