Delete a user

This page documents an earlier version of InfluxDB. InfluxDB v2.2 is the latest stable version. View this page in the v2.2 documentation.

Use the InfluxDB user interface (UI) or the influx command line interface (CLI) to delete a user.

Deleting a user removes them completely from InfluxDB. To remove a user from an organization without deleting the user entirely, see Remove a member from an organization.

Delete a user from the InfluxDB UI

Users cannot be deleted from the InfluxDB UI.

Delete a user using the influx CLI

Use the influx user delete command to delete a user. Deleting a user requires the following:

  • The user ID (provided in the output of influx user list)
# Syntax
influx user delete -i <user-id>

# Example
influx user delete -i 034ad714fdd6f000
