telegraf secrets list

The telegraf secrets list command lists known secrets and secret stores.

This command requires your configuration file that contains the secret store definitions you want to access. If the --config or --config-directory flags are not included in the command, Telegraf checks the default configuration file location.

If you haven’t configured a secret store, use telegraf plugins secretstores to list available secret store plugins. View secret store plugin configuration documentation in the Telegraf GitHub repository.


telegraf [global-flags] secrets list [flags] [SECRET_STORE_ID[ ...[SECRET_STORE_ID]]]


SECRET_STORE_IDID of the secret store to list secrets from. You can include multiple, space-delimited IDs. If no ID(s) are provided, the command lists secrets from all secret stores.


--reveal-secretPrint secret values
