Change your password

Use influx command line interface (CLI) to update your password.

User passwords cannot be updated in the InfluxDB UI.

Change your password using the influx CLI

Use the influx user password command to update a password for a user. Provide the following:

  • An operator token using your influx CLI connection configuration, INFLUX_TOKEN environment variable, or the --token, -t flag.
  • The username (with the --name, -n flag) or the user ID (with the --id, -i flag). View usernames and IDs in the output of influx user list.
  • Optional: the --password, -p flag and the new password. If you don’t provide a password flag, enter the new password when prompted.

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.
