Update a remote

  1. Use influx remote list to get the ID for the remote you want to update.
    $ influx remote list
    ID			        Name		Org ID
    0ooxX0xxXo0x 	    myremote    [...]
  2. Use the following command to update the remote:
    influx remote remote \
      --id 0ooxX0xxXo0x
      --name new-example-name
      --description new-examle-description
      --remote-api-token myN3wS3crE7t0k3n==
      --remote-org-id new-example-org-id
