argocd ui docs


Either with the included manifest

kubectl create namespace argocd
cat argocd.yaml | envsubst | kubectl apply -n argocd -f -

Or argocd manifest + patched deploy

Or if you prefer the github repo and patching (the patched apply below was the only required change at the time of writing):

kubectl apply -n argocd -f  
kubectl patch deploy argocd-server -n argocd --type json -p '[{"op": "replace", "path": "/spec/template/spec/containers/0/command", "value": ["argocd-server", "--insecure", "--staticassets","/shared/app"]}]'  


Either use port forwarding or create an ingress:

  • First we need the tmp one to create a tls (skip if you have a wildcard cert)
cat argocd-tmp-ingress.yaml | envsubst | kubectl apply -n argocd -f -
  • Wait until you see something appear before then deleting it(this actually works but it does not allow for grpc) you should see something appearing at
cat argocd-tmp-ingress.yaml | envsubst | kubectl delete -n argocd -f -
  • Now create the final ingressroute
cat argocd-ingressroute.yaml | envsubst | kubectl apply -n argocd -f -

Now goto, type in admin and

kubectl -n argocd get secret argocd-initial-admin-secret -o jsonpath="{.data.password}" | base64 -d && echo  


arkade get argocd
