Manage security and authorization

Security, access control, and sensitive secret handling are incredibly important when handling any sort of sensitive data. This section provides information about managing the security of your InfluxDB instance.

InfluxDB 2.x/1.x compatibility

If you upgraded from 1.x to 2.7, use the influx v1 auth commands to manage authorizations for the 1.x compatibility API.

The future of Flux

Flux is going into maintenance mode. You can continue using it as you currently are without any changes to your code.

Flux is going into maintenance mode and will not be supported in InfluxDB 3.0. This was a decision based on the broad demand for SQL and the continued growth and adoption of InfluxQL. We are continuing to support Flux for users in 1.x and 2.x so you can continue using it with no changes to your code. If you are interested in transitioning to InfluxDB 3.0 and want to future-proof your code, we suggest using InfluxQL.
