(
    bucket: string,
    start: A,
    ?host: string,
    ?org: string,
    ?stop: B,
    ?token: string,
) => stream[{
    C with
    _value: D,
    _time: time,
    _stop: time,
    _start: time,
    _measurement: string,

Parameters

bucket

(Required) Name of the bucket to query.

InfluxDB 1.x or Enterprise: Provide an empty string ("").

start

(Required) Earliest time to include in results.

Results include points that match the specified start time. Use a relative duration, absolute time, or integer (Unix timestamp in seconds). For example, -1h, 2019-08-28T22:00:00Z, or 1567029600. Durations are relative to now().

stop

Latest time to include in results. Default is now().

Results exclude points that match the specified stop time. Use a relative duration, absolute time, or integer (Unix timestamp in seconds). For example, -1h, 2019-08-28T22:00:00Z, or 1567029600. Durations are relative to now().

host

URL of the InfluxDB instance to query.

See InfluxDB OSS URLs or InfluxDB Cloud regions.

org

Organization name.

token

InfluxDB API token.

Examples

Query using the bucket name

import "contrib/jsternberg/influxdb"

influxdb.from(bucket: "example-bucket")

Query using the bucket ID

import "contrib/jsternberg/influxdb"

influxdb.from(bucketID: "0261d8287f4d6000")

Query a remote InfluxDB Cloud instance

import "contrib/jsternberg/influxdb"
import "influxdata/influxdb/secrets"

token = secrets.get(key: "INFLUXDB_CLOUD_TOKEN")

from(
    bucket: "example-bucket",
    host: "https://us-west-2-1.aws.cloud2.influxdata.com",
    org: "example-org",
    token: token,
)

The future of Flux

Flux is going into maintenance mode. You can continue using it as you currently are without any changes to your code.

Flux is going into maintenance mode and will not be supported in InfluxDB 3.0. This was a decision based on the broad demand for SQL and the continued growth and adoption of InfluxQL. We are continuing to support Flux for users in 1.x and 2.x so you can continue using it with no changes to your code. If you are interested in transitioning to InfluxDB 3.0 and want to future-proof your code, we suggest using InfluxQL.
