Influxdb and Grafana Connection Error


I have Grafana v10.1.0 and I’m trying to integrate Influxdb v1.6.7 with it. I’m currently using Basic auth.

I get an error saying “error connecting influxdb influxQL”

When I run systemctl status influxdb it says “authorisation not found”.

How should I go about this?


Try adding an HTTP header, name “Authorization” value “Token YourAPITokenFromInflux”.

That’s what I needed! You’ll need to add your username, too, below, and the same API Token in the password field, but without the "Token " prefix.
