Manage API tokens

InfluxDB API tokens ensure secure interaction between InfluxDB and external tools such as clients or applications. An API token belongs to a specific user and identifies InfluxDB permissions within the user’s organization.

Learn how to create, view, update, or delete an API token.

API token types

Operator token

Grants full read and write access to all resources in all organizations in InfluxDB OSS 2.x.

Operator tokens are created in the InfluxDB setup process and cannot be created manually. Because Operator tokens have full read and write access to all organizations in the database, we recommend creating an All-Access token for each organization and using those to manage InfluxDB. This helps to prevent accidental interactions across organizations.

All-Access token

Grants full read and write access to all resources in an organization.

Read/Write token

Grants read access, write access, or both to specific buckets in an organization.
