Database was created without authenticating

Hi i am using telegraf 1.7.3 and influxdb 1.6.2 for windows.

I enabled http auth and set pssword for admin.

I noticed telegraf was able to create telegraf database without autentication. What is this so?

I drop Telegraf db and i could see from telegraf logs that database not found” telegraf” and error writing to output.

However few seconds, i notice the telegraf db was successfully created in influxdb again.

Any idea what is wrong here?

Anyone any idea? …

I tried to reproduce this but couldn’t. I get the following errors:

2018-09-04T19:59:48Z E! Error writing to output [influxdb]: could not write any address
2018-09-04T19:59:50Z E! [outputs.influxdb] when writing to [http://localhost:8086]: database "telegraf" not found and failed to recreate
2018-09-04T19:59:50Z E! [outputs.influxdb]: when writing to [http://localhost:8086]: 404 Not Found: database not found: "telegraf"

What is your Telegraf log output?
