influx config

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>
