experimental.unpivot() function

experimental.unpivot() is subject to change at any time.

experimental.unpivot() creates _field and _value columns pairs using all columns (other than _time) not in the group key. The _field column contains the original column label and the _value column contains the original column value.

The output stream retains the group key and all group key columns of the input stream. _field is added to the output group key.

Function type signature
(<-tables: stream[{A with _time: time}], ?otherColumns: [string]) => stream[{B with _value: C, _field: string}] where A: Record, B: Record
For more information, see Function type signatures.

Parameters

Input data. Default is piped-forward data (<-).

List of column names that are not in the group key but are also not field columns. Default is ["_time"].

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.
