influx export all

Not supported in InfluxDB Cloud Serverless

While this command is included in the influx CLI , this functionality is not available in InfluxDB Cloud Serverless organizations powered by the InfluxDB IOx storage engine.

The influx export all command exports all resources in an organization as an InfluxDB template. For detailed examples of exporting InfluxDB templates, see Create an InfluxDB template.

To export resources as a template, you must use the Operator token created for the initial InfluxDB user or an All-Access token. For information about creating an All-Access API token, see Create an API token.

Authentication credentials

The examples below assume your InfluxDB host, organization, and token are provided by either the active influx CLI configuration or by environment variables (INFLUX_HOST, INFLUX_ORG, and INFLUX_TOKEN). If you do not have a CLI configuration set up or the environment variables set, include these required credentials for each command with the following flags:

  • --host: InfluxDB host
  • -o, --org or --org-id: InfluxDB organization name or ID
  • -t, --token: InfluxDB API token
