Delete a user

Use the InfluxDB user interface (UI) or the influx command line interface (CLI) to delete a user.

Deleting a user removes them completely from InfluxDB. To remove a user from an organization without deleting the user entirely, see Remove a member from an organization.

Delete a user from the InfluxDB UI

Users cannot be deleted from the InfluxDB UI.

Delete a user using the influx CLI

Use the influx user delete command to delete a user. Deleting a user requires the following:

  • The user ID (provided in the output of influx user list)

    # Syntax
    influx user delete -i <user-id>
    # Example
    influx user delete -i 034ad714fdd6f000
