rad run CLI reference

Details on the rad run Radius CLI command

rad run

Run an application


Run an application specified by a Bicep or ARM template

The run command compiles a Bicep or ARM template and runs it in your default environment (unless otherwise specified). It also automatically port-forwards container ports and streams container logs to a user’s terminal.

The run command accepts the same parameters as the ‘rad deploy’ command. See the ‘rad deploy’ help for more information.
