influx setup

Available with InfluxDB OSS 2.x only

The influx setup command initiates the setup process for InfluxDB OSS 2.x instances. The command does not work with InfluxDB Cloud.

The influx setup command walks through the initial InfluxDB OSS setup process, creating a default user, organization, and bucket.

The Operator token created in the InfluxDB setup process has full read and write access to all organizations in the database.
