Synopsis

The API server is a gRPC/REST server which exposes the API consumed by the Web UI, CLI, and CI/CD systems. This command runs API server in the foreground. It can be configured by following options.

argocd-server [flags]

Examples

  # Start the Argo CD API server with default settings
  $ argocd-server

  # Start the Argo CD API server on a custom port and enable tracing
  $ argocd-server --port 8888 --otlp-address localhost:4317
