Limited availability

InfluxDB Clustered is currently only available to a limited group of InfluxData customers. If interested in being part of the limited access group, please contact the InfluxData Sales team.

The influxctl token delete command deletes a database token from an InfluxDB cluster and revokes all permissions associated with the token.


influxctl token delete <TOKEN_ID> [<TOKEN_ID_N>...]

Deleting a token is immediate and cannot be undone

Deleting a database token is a destructive action that takes place immediately and cannot be undone.

Rotate deleted tokens

After deleting a database token, any clients using the deleted token need to be updated with a new database token to continue to interact with your InfluxDB cluster.


Argument Description
TOKEN_ID Database token ID to delete


Flag Description

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.
