Use Postman with the InfluxDB API
Download Postman from the official downloads page.
Or to install with Homebrew on macOS, run the following command:
brew cask install postman
Send authenticated API requests with Postman
All requests to the InfluxDB API must be authenticated. Postman lets you configure the headers and body of HTTP requests.
Use the Authorization tab in Postman to include the credentials required when interacting with the InfluxDB API.
- If you have not already, create a token.
- In the Authorization tab, select API Key in the Type dropdown.
- For Key, enter
- For Value, enter
Token <token string>, replacing
<token string>with the token generated in step 1.
- Ensure that the Add to option is set to Header.
Test authentication credentials
To test the authentication, enter the
/health endpoint of an InfluxDB OSS or
InfluxDB Cloud instance into the address bar and click Send.
