Proxmox plugin error

I created a user auditor in the pve realm, and add the role PVEAuditor to it

# pveum aclmod / -user auditor@pve -role PVEAuditor

Then I created a token for it, and name the token auditor

I copied configuration from telegraf/plugins/inputs/proxmox at master · influxdata/telegraf · GitHub

I’m confused about the api_token config:


Should I put the secret from creating the token or put the token id: auditor in the UUID? I tried both, but all have error below when testing it.

$ telegraf --debug --config t.conf --input-filter proxmox --test

Hi, I think the thread on this issue may help you configure your api_token correctly:

Let me know if that works for you.
