Create a user

Use the InfluxDB user interface (UI) or the influx command line interface (CLI) to create a user.

Create a user in the InfluxDB UI

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

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
