Ensure Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) Cluster Dashboard Is Disabled

Ensure the dashboard is disabled to reduce the risk of attacks through its access interface and eliminate the need for managing it. Disable the Kubernetes dashboard on an AKS cluster in the Terraform provider for Azure. Dashboards are treated as AKS add-ons that integrate with Azure Monitor for containers integration, AKS virtual nodes, or HTTP application routing. The dashboard add-on is default disabled for all newly created clusters on Kubernetes 1.18 or higher.
