You can configure the GitOps argocd CLI to enable tab completion.

Enabling tab completion

After you install the GitOps argocd CLI, you can enable tab completion to automatically complete argocd commands or suggest options when you press Tab.

Tab completions only exist for the Bash shell.

  • You must have the GitOps argocd CLI tool installed.

  • You must have bash-completion installed on your local system.


The following procedure enables tab completion for the Bash shell.

  1. Save the Bash completion code to a file:

    $ argocd completion bash > argocd_bash_completion
  2. Copy the file to /etc/bash_completion.d/:

    $ sudo cp argocd_bash_completion /etc/bash_completion.d/

    Alternatively, you can save the file to a local directory and source it from your .bash_profile file instead.

Tab completion is enabled when you open a new terminal.
