influx config

This page documents an earlier version of InfluxDB. InfluxDB v2.5 is the latest stable version. View this page in the v2.5 documentation.

The influx config command displays the active InfluxDB connection configuration and manages multiple connection configurations stored, by default, in ~/.influxdbv2/configs. Each connection includes a URL, token, associated organization, and active setting. InfluxDB reads the token from the active connection configuration, so you don’t have to manually enter a token to log into InfluxDB.

Usage

influx config [flags]
influx config [command]
influx config <config-name>
Quickly switch between configurations
# Syntax

# Example
