Managing Dependencies

GitOps Engine (


Pulling changes from gitops-engine

After your GitOps Engine PR has been merged, ArgoCD needs to be updated to pull in the version of the GitOps engine that contains your change. Here are the steps:

  • Retrieve the SHA hash for your commit. You will use this in the next step.
  • From the argo-cd folder, run the following command

    go get<git-commit-sha>

    If you get an error message invalid version: unknown revision then you got the wrong SHA hash

  • Run:

    go mod tidy

  • The following files are changed:

    • go.mod
    • go.sum
  • Create an ArgoCD PR with a refactor: type in its title for the two file changes.


  • See as an example
  • The PR might require additional, dependent changes in ArgoCD that are directly impacted by the changes made in the engine.
