Delete a token

Use the influxctl token delete command to delete a database token from your InfluxDB Cloud Dedicated cluster and revoke all permissions associated with the token.

  1. If you haven’t already, download and install the influxctl CLI.

  2. Run the influxctl token list command to output tokens with their IDs. Copy the token ID of the token you want to delete.

    influxctl token list
  3. Run the influxctl token delete command and provide the following:

    • Token ID to delete
    influxctl token delete <TOKEN_ID>
  4. Confirm that you want to delete the token.

Deleting a token is immediate and cannot be undone

Deleting a database token is a destructive action that takes place immediately and cannot be undone.

Rotate deleted tokens

After deleting a database token, any clients using the deleted token need to be updated with a new database token to continue to interact with your InfluxDB Cloud Dedicated cluster.
