Manage secrets

Manage secrets using the influx command line interface (CLI) or the InfluxDB API. All secrets belong to an organization and are stored in your secret-store.


Use secrets in a query

Import the influxdata/influxd/secrets package and use the secrets.get() function to populate sensitive data in queries with secrets from your secret store.

import "influxdata/influxdb/secrets"
import "sql"

username = secrets.get(key: "POSTGRES_USERNAME")
password = secrets.get(key: "POSTGRES_PASSWORD")

sql.from(
  driverName: "postgres",
  dataSourceName: "postgresql://${username}:${password}@localhost",
  query:"SELECT * FROM example-table"
)
