Manage secrets

This page documents an earlier version of InfluxDB. InfluxDB v2.6 is the latest stable version. View this page in the v2.6 documentation.

Secrets are key-value pairs that contain sensitive information you want to control access to, such as API keys, passwords, or certificates. There are two options for storing secrets with InfluxDB:

  • By default, secrets are Base64-encoded and stored in the InfluxDB embedded key value store, BoltDB.
  • You can also set up a Vault server to store secrets. For details, see Store secrets in Vault.
