Cannot write using line protocol in UI


I’m new to InfluxDB but I have experienced its potential in the past. For this reason I’m trying to prototype for my organization a simple solution to show what we can do.
Unfortunately I seem to have issues in performing teh simplest steps like writing and reading back data. Can you please advise?

I resorted to using the UI to keep my prototype as simple as possible.
I write data using the UI and it all looks OK

However if I try to read I can’t find my data…

the log output shows some issues:
2020-09-07T10:21:30.877058Z info Unauthorized {"log_id": "0P5~6eBl000", "error": "token required"}

But I’m not able to understand if this is the problem as I believe I have everything configured correctly in the UI

Thanks in advance for your help :slight_smile:

This is what I’m trying to write.

mem,host=host1 used_percent=64.23 1577836800000000000
mem,host=host2 used_percent=72.01 1577836800000000000
mem,host=host1 used_percent=62.61 1577836810000000000
mem,host=host2 used_percent=72.98 1577836810000000000
mem,host=host1 used_percent=63.4 1577836820000000000
mem,host=host2 used_percent=73.77 1577836820000000000


And these are the tokens

Any help from anybody? :pray:t2:

Hey @fab what version of OSS are you using? Also, can you walk me through each of the steps that you’ve taken. I’d like to try to reproduce this locally and I’m having a hard time following the sequence of steps.

Thanks @michael
This is the version:

[fbs]  > influxd version
InfluxDB 2.0.0-beta.16 (git: 50964d732c) build_date: 2020-08-07T20:18:07Z

These are the steps:

  • Load Data -> buckets
  • Add Data in the bucket I chose
  • Line Protocol
  • Add data Using Line Protocol -> enter manually
  • I copy in the window the data I showed-> click on Write data
  • Data Explorer -> select the bucket I have just written
  • At this point I do not see any data

This is the log from the server

Any solutions on this problem? I’ve got RC1 and Python API writes give no error. Still no data is written by correct tokens to either local DB nor to the Cloud. Cannot figure out what’s wrong as the code should be ok, tokens are ok, no errors given by the writes etc…

@ahannula I’m afraid I did not manage to get it running

Just to check, I installed a new fresh Influx RC0 on Ubuntu 20. Still has the same problem. Tokens are correct, Python client gives no error (ie. “wrote ok”) but influxd says “info, Unauthorized, error, session not found”. No idea what this refers to? It almost like refers to some missing authorization token/setup somewhere else than in the query (but there is no documentation for that…!)

Anybody having an idea, anybody actually has this working?

Hello @ahannula and @fab,
Out of curiosity have you tried the same with an all access token? Can you please try that? Also can you please create an issue for the python client(@ahannula) and influxdb(@fab) respectively?

one year later - i have the same problem. Was there a solution @ahannula @fab ?
I would like to write datapoints to Influx, but i got the same issues like above. I tried it with an all access token and i’m workin on Windows.
