Migration InfluxDB 1.X - 2.X - Keep query authentication disabled


I am currently in the process of migrating my InfluxDB instance from version 1.8 to version 2.
Previously, I was not using any authentication for querying it. And I would like to keep it this way… If possible !

Reading at the migration process / general documentation of the V 2. It seems that authentication is now required for write queries for example.

My question is: Is it indeed a requirement, or is there still a way to disable authentication, work without authentication ?

Thanks in advance !

Hi @0liver,

InfluxDB 2.0 does indeed require authentication, as part of it’s secure by default design.

However, you can use Tokens when making API calls for easy authentication
