influx v1 auth

Not supported in InfluxDB Cloud

InfluxDB Cloud does not support InfluxDB 1.x compatible authorizations. To authenticate with InfluxDB Cloud, use InfluxDB token authentication.

The influx v1 auth subcommands provide authorization management for the InfluxDB 1.x compatibility API.

InfluxDB Cloud uses API tokens to authorize API requests. The 1.x compatibility API lets clients authenticate with InfluxDB Cloud using the InfluxDB 1.x convention of username and password.

1.x-compatible authorizations are separate from the credentials used to log into the InfluxDB user interface.

Usage

influx v1 auth [flags]
influx v1 auth [command]

Command aliases

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.
