Charts view#

In the Charts view, you can search and manage Helm charts, which are pre-packaged applications or services in Kubernetes. Helm is a package manager for Kubernetes that simplifies the deployment and management of applications. Helm charts define, install, and upgrade even the most complex Kubernetes applications. See the official Helm documentation for details.

With the Charts view, Lens provides a seamless experience for exploring, installing, and managing Helm charts, allowing you to efficiently deploy and maintain applications in your Kubernetes cluster.

The Charts table lists available Helm charts. You can click the list items and open the details panel with comprehensive information and various options. You can also search for a specific item using the Search Charts input field.

You can resize and reorder the table columns. Drag the column border in the table header to change the width. To change the column position, drag its header left or right. Also, you can sort objects in ascending or descending order by clicking the header of a column and configure the column visibility. By default, the table consists of the following columns:

Column Description
Name The name of the Helm chart.
Description A brief description of the chart's purpose and functionality.
Version The version of the chart.
App Version The version of the application associated with the chart.
