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

Self-hosting customers can access this endpoint with on the path /debug/metrics. For example when running ZITADEL locally its 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 of through ZITADEL's configuration. The (default) configuration is located in the defaults.yaml.
