Usage

influx auth active [flags]

Flags

Flag Description Input type Maps to ?
-c --active-config CLI configuration to use for command string
--configs-path Path to influx CLI configurations (default ~/.influxdbv2/configs) string INFLUX_CONFIGS_PATH
-h --help Help for the active command
--hide-headers Hide table headers (default false) INFLUX_HIDE_HEADERS
--http-debug Inspect communication with InfluxDB servers. string
--host HTTP address of InfluxDB (default http://localhost:8086) string INFLUX_HOST
-i --id (Required) API token ID string
--json Output data as JSON (default false) INFLUX_OUTPUT_JSON
--skip-verify Skip TLS certificate verification INFLUX_SKIP_VERIFY
-t --token API token string INFLUX_TOKEN

Example

Authentication credentials

The examples below assume your InfluxDB host, organization, and token are provided by either the active influx CLI configuration or by environment variables (INFLUX_HOST, INFLUX_ORG, and INFLUX_TOKEN). If you do not have a CLI configuration set up or the environment variables set, include these required credentials for each command with the following flags:

  • --host: InfluxDB host
  • -o, --org or --org-id: InfluxDB organization name or ID
  • -t, --token: InfluxDB API token
Activate an API token

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.
