While in alpha, additional users cannot be created in the InfluxDB UI.

Create a user using the influx CLI

Use the influx user create command to create a new user. A new user requires the following:

  • A username

    # Pattern
    influx user create -n <username>
    
    # Example
    influx user create -n johndoe

Create a user with a password and organization

To create a new user with a password and add the user as a member of an organization, include a password and organization ID with the influx user create command.

Use the influx org find command to retrieve your organization ID.

# Pattern
influx user create -n <username> -p <password> -o <org-id>

# Example
influx user create -n johndoe -p PaSsWoRd -o 0o0x00o0x0000oo0
