Authorization for using UDP

#1

We are using UDP interface in order to write data on our server. Is there any way by which authorization can be implemented before writing any data using UDP.

In the documentation, I could find only HTTP based authorization is provided.

Manish

You can write to Telegraf over UDP, and then use Telegraf’s InfluxDB output to an InfluxDB instance with SSL. See this thread: Udp stats collection encryption

Thanks Mark.

For me challenge is that I have field sensors which because of limited bandwidth I using them to emit data in udp.
I can create telegraph instance only on the server where my influxdb is ruining.
I think one of the way is to embed user credentials in the packet to telegraph. But I don’t know if telegraph can check the credentials before forwarding to db ?
