Delete a token

Delete API tokens from the InfluxDB user interface (UI) or the influx command line interface (CLI). Once deleted, all users and external integrations using the API token will no longer have access to your InfluxDB instance.

Delete tokens in the InfluxDB UI

  1. In the navigation menu on the left, select Data (Load Data) > API Tokens.

  2. Hover over the token you want to delete.

  3. Click the icon located far right of the token description.

  4. Click Delete to delete the token.

Delete a token using the influx CLI

Use the influx auth delete command to delete a token.

This command requires an auth ID, which is available in the output of influx auth find.

# Syntax
influx auth delete -i <auth-id>

# Example
influx auth delete -i 03a2bee5a9c9a000

Delete a token using the InfluxDB API

Use the /api/v2/authorizations InfluxDB API endpoint to delete a token.

DELETE http://localhost:8086/api/v2/authorizations/AUTH_ID

Include the following in your request:
