Update secrets

Update secrets using the influx command line interface (CLI) or the InfluxDB API.

Update a secret using the influx CLI

Use the influx secret update command to update a secret in your organization. Provide the secret key to update 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.

# Syntax
influx secret update -k <secret-key>

# Example
influx secret update -k foo

Update a secret using the InfluxDB API

Use the PATCH request method and the InfluxDB /orgs/{orgID}/secrets API endpoint to update a secret in your organization.

Include the following:

curl --request PATCH http://localhost:8086/api/v2/orgs/<org-id>/secrets \
  --header 'Authorization: Token YOURAUTHTOKEN' \
  --header 'Content-type: application/json' \
  --data '{
	"<secret-key>": "<secret-value>"
}'
