ZITADEL provides a metrics endpoint with the help of the opentelemetry-go package.

If you are self-hosting ZITADEL, you can access this endpoint with on the path /debug/metrics. For example when running ZITADEL locally the endpoint is accessible on http://localhost:8080/debug/metrics. The metrics endpoint can be scrubbed by any tool of choice that supports the otel format, e.g an existing Prometheus.

For our Kubernetes/Helm users, we provide an out of the box support for the ServiceMonitor custom resource.

By default, metrics are enabled but can be turned off through ZITADEL's configuration. The (default) configuration is located in the defaults.yaml.
