InfluxDB v2 API

The InfluxDB v2 API provides a programmatic interface for interactions with InfluxDB. Access the InfluxDB API using the /api/v2/ endpoint.

Authentication

InfluxDB uses authentication tokens to authorize API requests. Include your authentication token as an Authorization header in each request.

curl --request POST \
  --url http://localhost:9999/api/v2/write?org=my-org&bucket=example-bucket \
  --header 'Authorization: Token YOURAUTHTOKEN'
# Use the hostname of your InfluxDB Cloud UI
curl --request POST \
  --url https://us-west-2-1.aws.cloud2.influxdata.com/api/v2/write?org=my-org&bucket=example-bucket \
  --header 'Authorization: Token YOURAUTHTOKEN'
