Data not coming through after 2.6 upgrade

Hello everyone!

We’re facing an issue after upgrading from 1.8 to 2.6.

We were filling one bucket with data directly coming from nimon in each server. When we set up Influxdb 1.8, we just deployed the bucket and it started getting the nimon inputs. In 2.6 I’ve not been able to “allow” nimon to write directly to bucket as previously. Would be great if you can point me in the right direction!

The authentication process has changed, as you may have noticed? With 1.x you needed to provide user and password, whereas with 2.x it is a token instead.

In addition to this, the source-system of your data needs to be able to use the tokens, which is not true for a lot of systems (they only work with 1.x authentication).

Thanks a lot for your reply, that was the issue. Using nimon flags -O for organization and -T for Token instead of user and password worked fine!
