Thanks to Influx support this issue is now resolved: I had to use the “sa” admin credentials.
The formal reply:
Authentication with a Kapacitor add-on is done via HTTP authentication. For example:
kapacitor -url https://username:firstname.lastname@example.org:9092 list tasks
Where 'username' and 'password' are the administrator credentials used to initially create the > cluster. Currently only adminstrator users have the necessary permissions to interface with the Kapacitor API.
