Need more detailed information on influxdb

No. I figured that out after I sent the message. I changed the https in the curl to http and now get

HTTP/1.1 401 Unauthorized
X-Powered-By: Express
Access-Control-Allow-Origin: *
WWW-Authenticate: Basic realm="Authorization Required"
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=utf-8
Content-Length: 12

Connection: keep-alive
Keep-Alive: timeout=5

which looks to be moving forward :grin: The file is in tmp so now all I need is to work out how to let Node-red know.

That's the clue. Do you have login on the http-in node? Or have you just not set up the endpoint yet?

Erm .. probably not?? How do I do I set up the end point?

OK cracked it. If anyone reading this wants to know how;

curl -u userid:password  http://localhost:1880/urlname
