InfluxDB V2 and Telegraf -> unauthorized: unauthorized access


I’m trying to play with InfluxDB V2 and Telegraf…

I have an error with telegraf :

[outputs.influxdb_v2] Buffer fullness: 2098 / 10000 metrics
[4330]: 2021-01-06T15:09:39Z E! [agent] Error writing to outputs.influxdb_v2: failed to write metric: unauthorized: unauthorized access

This is my telegraf conf :


Configuration for telegraf agent


Default data collection interval for all inputs

interval = “10s”

Rounds collection interval to ‘interval’

ie, if interval=“10s” then always collect on :00, :10, :20, etc.

round_interval = true

Telegraf will send metrics to outputs in batches of at most

metric_batch_size metrics.

This controls the size of writes that Telegraf sends to output plugins.

metric_batch_size = 1000

For failed writes, telegraf will cache metric_buffer_limit metrics for each

output, and will flush this buffer on a successful write. Oldest metrics

are dropped first when this buffer fills.

This buffer only fills when writes fail to output plugin(s).

metric_buffer_limit = 10000

Collection jitter is used to jitter the collection by a random amount.

Each plugin will sleep for a random time within jitter before collecting.

This can be used to avoid many plugins querying things like sysfs at the

same time, which can have a measurable effect on the system.

collection_jitter = “0s”

Default flushing interval for all outputs. Maximum flush_interval will be

flush_interval + flush_jitter

flush_interval = “10s”

Jitter the flush interval by a random amount. This is primarily to avoid

large write spikes for users running a large number of telegraf instances.

ie, a jitter of 5s and interval 10s means flushes will happen every 10-15s

flush_jitter = “0s”

By default or when set to “0s”, precision will be set to the same

timestamp order as the collection interval, with the maximum being 1s.

ie, when interval = “10s”, precision will be “1s”

when interval = “250ms”, precision will be “1ms”

Precision will NOT be used for service inputs. It is up to each individual

service input to set the timestamp at the appropriate precision.

Valid time units are “ns”, “us” (or “µs”), “ms”, “s”.

precision = “”

Logging configuration:

Run telegraf with debug log messages.

debug = false

Run telegraf in quiet mode (error log messages only).

quiet = false

Specify the log file name. The empty string means to log to stderr.

logfile = “”

Override default hostname, if empty use os.Hostname()

hostname = “”

If set to true, do no set the “host” tag in the telegraf agent.

omit_hostname = false

The URLs of the InfluxDB cluster nodes.

Multiple URLs can be specified for a single cluster, only ONE of the

urls will be written to each interval.

urls exp:

urls = [“http://ip_of_my_server:8086”]

Token for authentication.

token = “$INFLUX_TOKEN”

Organization is the name of the organization you wish to write to; must exist.

organization = “Organisation”

Destination bucket to write into.

bucket = “SERVER”

Whether to report per-cpu stats or not

percpu = true

Whether to report total system cpu stats or not

totalcpu = true

If true, collect raw CPU time metrics.

collect_cpu_time = false

If true, compute and report the sum of all non-idle CPU states.

report_active = false

By default stats will be gathered for all mount points.

Set mount_points will restrict the stats to only the specified mount points.

mount_points = ["/"]

Ignore mount points by filesystem type.

ignore_fs = [“tmpfs”, “devtmpfs”, “devfs”, “overlay”, “aufs”, “squashfs”]

Thanks in advanced for helping me.

Have a good day

i have the same problem… Did you already solved it?

Same issue here, does anyone have a fix?
