influx user password

Works with InfluxDB OSS 2.x

The influx user command and its subcommands manage InfluxDB OSS 2.x users, but do not manage users in InfluxDB Cloud. Use the InfluxDB Cloud UI to manage account information.

The influx user password command updates the password for a user in InfluxDB.

Usage

influx user password [flags]

Flags

FlagDescriptionInput typeMaps to ?
-c--active-configCLI configuration to use for commandstring
--configs-pathPath to influx CLI configurations (default ~/.influxdbv2/configs)stringINFLUX_CONFIGS_PATH
-h--helpHelp for the password command

-t--tokenAPI tokenstringINFLUX_TOKEN

Examples

Authentication credentials

The examples below assume your InfluxDB host, organization, and token are provided by either the active influx CLI configuration or by environment variables (INFLUX_HOST, INFLUX_ORG, and INFLUX_TOKEN). If you do not have a CLI configuration set up or the environment variables set, include these required credentials for each command with the following flags:

  • --host: InfluxDB host
  • -o, --org or --org-id: InfluxDB organization name or ID
  • -t, --token: InfluxDB API token
Update a user password using a username
influx user password --name example-username
# Prompts for password
Update a user password using a user ID
influx user password --id 0Xx0oox00XXoxxoo1
# Prompts for password

The future of Flux

Flux is going into maintenance mode. You can continue using it as you currently are without any changes to your code.

Flux is going into maintenance mode and will not be supported in InfluxDB 3.0. This was a decision based on the broad demand for SQL and the continued growth and adoption of InfluxQL. We are continuing to support Flux for users in 1.x and 2.x so you can continue using it with no changes to your code. If you are interested in transitioning to InfluxDB 3.0 and want to future-proof your code, we suggest using InfluxQL.
