[Solved] Argocd invalid username and password

 

After installing the Argocd in kubernetes facing issue during the login to Argocd UI in browser with error  invalid username or password


Error:-

Invalid username or password

 

Cause:-

MosCt of the places you will find that the initial password for the Argocd is the container name with argocd-server or argocd-server.namespace but by entering both of them you would still go through the same issue and it wont login. Argocd set up a one time password and you wont be able to decode the password which is in secrets manager as that password even dont work.

Check the solution below


Solution :-

Argocd sets up a one time password which you will have to get from the Argocd pod itself as

[email protected]:~/Desktop$ kubectl exec -n argocd argocd-server-64957744c9-zv72p -- argocd admin initial-password
D801LidqTOVXiCGh

Remember this is the initial password which has been setup and you should go ahead and change this password as

argocd admin  --password string
This would update the password for the Argocd admin user.
