influx v1 auth

The influx v1 auth subcommands provide authorization management for the InfluxDB 1.x compatibility API.

InfluxDB 2.0 requires authorization with token-based authorization as the standard method. The 1.x compatibility API lets clients authenticate with InfluxDB 2.0 using the InfluxDB 1.x convention of username and password.

1.x-compatibile authorizations are separate from the credentials used to log into the InfluxDB user interface.
