Manage authentication tokens

InfluxDB authentication tokens ensure secure interaction between users and data. A token belongs to an organization and identifies InfluxDB permissions within the organization.

Learn how to create, view, update, or delete an authentication token.

Authentication token types

Operator token

Grants full read and write access to all resources in all organizations in InfluxDB OSS 2.x.

Operator tokens are created in the InfluxDB setup process and cannot be created manually. Because Operator tokens have full read and write access to all organizations in the database, we recommend creating an All-Access token for each organization and using those to manage InfluxDB. This helps to prevent accidental interactions across organizations.

All-Access token

Grants full read and write access to all resources in an organization.

Read/Write token

Grants read access, write access, or both to specific buckets in an organization.
