InfluxDB uses token authentication to authorize access to data in your InfluxDB Cloud Dedicated cluster. Each token grants read and write permissions to one or more databases and allows for actions like writing and querying data.
All read and write actions performed against time series data in your InfluxDB
Cloud Dedicated cluster must be authorized using a token. Administrative actions
such as managing tokens and databases are authorized using management tokens
issued by Auth0. Management tokens allow clients, such as the
to perform administrative actions.
Store secure tokens in a secret store
Token strings are returned only on token creation. We recommend storing database tokens in a secure secret store. For example, see how to authenticate Telegraf using tokens in your OS secret store.
