I need to create a token from the CLI using a BASH script. When I use influx setup I get “Error: instance at xxxx has already been setup”. I need to automate the creation of a new token with permission to read a bucket or automate the acquisition on the existing token without using the UI.
influx setup is used for first time setup of admin user and initial org and bucket. Use
influx auth for managing tokens and assigning r/w permission for buckets
influx auth denies access unless you have the token.

influx CLI tool.
I know you said bash, but perhaps this will be useful anyways:
