influx config

influx CLI 2.0.0+

InfluxDB 2.0.0+

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
influx config <config-name>

# Example
influx config local-config

To quickly switch back to the previous configuration, use the following command:

Examples
