-o --org Organization name (mutually exclusive with --org-id) string INFLUX_ORG
--org-id Organization ID (mutually exclusive with --org) string INFLUX_ORG_ID
--password Password to set on the authorization
--read-bucket Bucket ID to assign read permissions to stringArray

Examples

Authentication credentials

The examples below assume your InfluxDB host, organization, and token are provided by either the active influx CLI configuration or by environment variables (INFLUX_HOST, INFLUX_ORG, and INFLUX_TOKEN). If you do not have a CLI configuration set up or the environment variables set, include these required credentials for each command with the following flags:

  • --host: InfluxDB host
  • -o, --org or --org-id: InfluxDB organization name or ID
  • -t, --token: InfluxDB API token
Create a v1 authorization with read and write permissions
# Create an authorization with read and write access to bucket 00xX00o0X001
# but only read access to bucket 00xX00o0X002
influx v1 auth create \
  --read-bucket 00xX00o0X001 \
  --read-bucket 00xX00o0X002 \
  --write-bucket 00xX00o0X001 \

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.
