InfluxDB Clustered is currently only available to a limited group of InfluxData customers. If interested in being part of the limited access group, please contact the InfluxData Sales team.
InfluxDB uses token authentication to authorize access to data in your InfluxDB cluster. Each token grants read and write permissions to one or more databases and allows for actions like writing and querying data.
All read and write actions performed against time series data in your InfluxDB
cluster must be authorized using a token. Administrative actions
such as managing tokens and databases are authorized using management tokens
issued by Auth0. Management tokens allow clients, such as the
to perform administrative actions.
Store secure tokens in a secret store
Token strings are returned only on token creation. We recommend storing database tokens in a secure secret store. For example, see how to authenticate Telegraf using tokens in your OS secret store.
Tokens cannot be updated
Once created, token permissions cannot be updated. If you need a token with different permissions, create a token with the appropriate permissions.
