Query CockroachDB

To query CockroachDB with Flux:

  1. Import the sql package.

  2. Use sql.from() and provide the following parameters:

    • driverName: postgres
    • dataSourceName: See data source name
    • query: PSQL query to execute
import "sql"

sql.from(
  driverName: "postgres",
  dataSourceName: "postgresql://username:password@localhost:26257/cluster_name.defaultdb?sslmode=verify-full&sslrootcert=certs_dir/cc-ca.crt",
  query: "SELECT * FROM example_table"
)

CockroachDB data source name

The postgres driver uses the following DSN syntax (also known as a connection string) to connect to CockroachDB :

postgres://username:password@localhost:26257/cluster_name.defaultdb?sslmode=verify-full&sslrootcert=certs_dir/cc-ca.crt

The postgres driver use the Go pq implementation to interact with CockroachDB.

CockroachDB to Flux data type conversion

sql.from() converts PostgreSQL and CockroachDB data types to Flux data types.
