pagerduty.dedupKey() function

pagerduty.dedupKey() uses the group key of an input table to generate and store a deduplication key in the _pagerdutyDedupKeycolumn. The function sorts, newline-concatenates, SHA256-hashes, and hex-encodes the group key to create a unique deduplication key for each input table.

Function type signature
(<-tables: stream[A], ?exclude: [string]) => stream[{A with _pagerdutyDedupKey: string}]

For more information, see Function type signatures.



Group key columns to exclude when generating the deduplication key. Default is ["_start", “_stop”, “_level”].

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.
