Update secrets

Update secrets using the InfluxDB Cloud UI, influx command line interface (CLI) or the InfluxDB API.

Update a secret using the InfluxDB Cloud UI

  1. In the InfluxDB Cloud UI, click Settings.

  2. Click the Secrets tab.

  3. Click on the secret key whose value you want to update.

  4. Enter the new value, and click Edit Secret.

Update a secret using the influx CLI

Use the influx secret update command to update a secret in your organization. Provide the secret key to update with the -k or --key flag. You may also provide the secret value with the -v or --value flag. If you do not provide the secret value with the -v or --value flag, enter the value when prompted.

Providing a secret value with the -v or --value flag may expose the secret in your command history.

# Syntax
influx secret update -k <secret-key>

# Example
influx secret update -k foo

Update a secret using the InfluxDB API

Use the PATCH request method and the InfluxDB /orgs/{orgID}/secrets API endpoint to update a secret in your organization.

Include the following:

  • Your organization ID in the request URL
  • Your API token in the Authorization header
  • The updated secret key-value pair in the request body
curl -XPATCH https://cloud2.influxdata.com/api/v2/orgs/<org-id>/secrets \
  -H 'Authorization: Token YOUR_API_TOKEN' \
  -H 'Content-type: application/json' \
  --data '{
	"<secret-key>": "<secret-value>"
}'

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.
