In Kubernetes, a Service is an object that is used to expose an application (running in pods) to a network.

The Services page lists the services within your cluster, and provides detail on each service. To view the list of services, select Services from the left hand menu.

All the services the user has access to are listed on this page.

For each service, the list displays the name of the service, the application and namespace the service belongs to, the type of service, the exposed ports and target ports, the cluster IP and external IP (if any) and the creation date and user (if available). Services provisioned externally to Portainer are marked with the external label, and system services are marked with the system label.

The display of system services can be toggled under the table settings (click the three dots at the top right of the table and tick Show system resources.
