Other SQL operators

SQL supports miscellaneous operators that perform various operations.

OperatorMeaning
||Concatenate strings
AT TIME ZONEApply a time zone offset

||

The || operator concatenates two string operands into a single string.

SELECT 'Hello' || ' world' AS "Concatenated"
Concatenated
Hello world

AT TIME ZONE

The AT TIME ZONE operator applies the offset of the specified time zone to a timestamp type and returns an updated UTC timestamp. Time zone offsets are provided by the the operating system time zone database.

Timestamp types in InfluxDB always represent a UTC time. The returned timestamp is a UTC timestamp adjusted for the offset of the specified time zone.

SELECT
  '2024-01-01 00:00:00'::TIMESTAMP AT TIME ZONE 'America/Los_Angeles' AS 'UTC with TZ offset'
UTC with TZ offset
2024-01-01T08:00:00.000Z

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.
