InfluxDB API key

I have a tool that writes to InfluxDB via its API key. Looked at configuration but I can’t find any API keys. Where do I find these?

API tokens are only available for version 2.0 as far as I understand. For version 2.0 the documentation is https://docs.influxdata.com/influxdb/v2.0/security/tokens/ and it explains everything in detail.

For 1.8 and I assume 1.9 as well only basic authentication is available using username and password (see Authentication and authorization in InfluxDB | InfluxDB OSS 1.8 Documentation).

Hope that helps :slight_smile:

Thanks. I’m using an add-on to install InfluxDB 2.0 into Home Assistant (home-assistant.io) but I can’t reproduce the steps listed in the 2.0 doc. Will check with the Home Assistant team in the meantime. txs for the pointer
