influx auth inactive
influx auth inactive command inactivates an authentication token in InfluxDB.
Inactive tokens do not authorize access to InfluxDB.
To temporarily disable client access to InfluxDB, inactivate the authentication token the client is using rather than delete the token. If you delete the token, you have to generate a new token and update the client with the new token. By setting a token to inactive, you can activate the token to grant the client access without having to modify the client.
