Authentication credentials

The examples below assume your InfluxDB host, organization, and token are provided by either the active influx CLI configuration or by environment variables (INFLUX_HOST, INFLUX_ORG, and INFLUX_TOKEN). If you do not have a CLI configuration set up or the environment variables set, include these required credentials for each command with the following flags:

  • --host: InfluxDB host
  • -o, --org or --org-id: InfluxDB organization name or ID
  • -t, --token: InfluxDB API token

Update a replication

  1. Use influx replication list to get the ID for the replication you want to update.
    $ influx replication list
    ID			        Name		Org ID
    0ooxX0xxXo0x      	    myreplication    [...]
  2. Use the following command to update the replication:
    influx replication update \
      --id 0ooxX0xxXo0x
      --name new-replication-name
      --description new-replication-description
      --replication-api-token new-replication-api-token
      --replication-org-id new-replication-org-id
