Documentation

influx v1 auth set-password

Not supported in InfluxDB Cloud

InfluxDB Cloud does not support InfluxDB 1.x compatible authorizations. Using the influx v1 auth set-password command with InfluxDB Cloud will result in an error. To authenticate with InfluxDB Cloud, use InfluxDB token authentication.

The influx v1 auth set-password command sets a password for an existing authorization in the InfluxDB 1.x compatibility API.

Usage

influx v1 auth set-password [flags]

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
