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.
