View tokens

View authentication tokens using the InfluxDB user interface (UI) or the influx command line interface (CLI).

Tokens are visible only to the user who created them and stop working when the user is deactivated. We recommend creating a generic IT user to create and manage tokens for writing data.

View tokens in the InfluxDB UI

  1. In the navigation menu on the left, select Data (Load Data) > Tokens.

  2. Click a token name from the list to view the token and a summary of access permissions.

View tokens using the influx CLI

Use the influx auth list command to view tokens.

influx auth list

Filtering options such as filtering by authorization ID, username, or user ID are available. See the influx auth list documentation for information about other available flags.
