chronoctl gen-keypair

The gen-keypair command generates an RSA keypair and writes it to the file system. Private keys are stored in a file at a specified location. Private keys are stored in the same location using the same name with the .pub extension added.


chronoctl gen-keypair [flags]


Flag Description Input type
--bits Number of bits to use to generate the RSA keypair (default is 4096) integer
-h --help Output command help
--out Keypair file path to write to (default is chronograf-rsa) string


The following example generates a 4096 bit RSA keypair and writes the following files to the local file system:

  • /path/to/chrono-rsa: Private key
  • /path/to/ Public key
chronoctl gen-keypair --out /path/to/chrono-rsa

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.
