influx secret update

The influx secret update command adds and updates secrets. Provide the secret key with the -k or --key flag. You may also provide the secret value with the -v or --value flag. If you do not provide the secret value with the -v or --value flag, enter the value when prompted.

Providing a secret value with the -v or --value flag may expose the secret in your command history.
