Use the Dapr CLI in a GitHub Actions workflow

Learn how to add the Dapr CLI to your GitHub Actions to deploy and manage Dapr in your environments.

Dapr can be integrated with GitHub Actions via the Dapr tool installer available in the GitHub Marketplace. This installer adds the Dapr CLI to your workflow, allowing you to deploy, manage, and upgrade Dapr across your environments.


The dapr/setup-dapr action will install the specified version of the Dapr CLI on macOS, Linux and Windows runners. Once installed, you can run any Dapr CLI command to manage your Dapr environments.
