Automated Dependency Updates for Argo CD

Renovate supports updating Argo CD dependencies.

File Matching

Because file names for argocd cannot be easily determined automatically, Renovate will not attempt to match any argocd files by default. For details on how to extend a manager's fileMatch value, please follow this link.

Supported datasources

This manager supports extracting the following datasources: docker, git-tags, helm.

Default config

{
  "fileMatch": []
}

Additional Information

The argocd manager has no fileMatch default patterns, so it won't match any files until you configure it with a pattern. This is because there is no commonly accepted file/directory naming convention for argocd YAML files and we don't want to check every single *.yaml file in repositories just in case any of them have ArgoCD definitions.

If most .yaml files in your repository are argocd ones, then you could add this to your config:

{
  "argocd": {
    "fileMatch": ["\\.yaml$"]
  }
}

If instead you have them all inside a argocd/ directory, you would add this:

{
  "argocd": {
    "fileMatch": ["argocd/.+\\.yaml$"]
  }
}

Or if it's just a single file then something like this:

{
  "argocd": {
    "fileMatch": ["^config/applications\\.yaml$"]
  }
}
