A bucket is a named location where time series data is stored. All buckets have a retention period, a duration of time that each data point persists. InfluxDB drops all points with timestamps older than the bucket’s retention period. A bucket belongs to an organization.
The following articles provide information about managing buckets:
Create a bucket
Create buckets to store time series data in InfluxDB Cloud using the InfluxDB UI, influx CLI, or InfluxDB HTTP API.
Update a bucket
Update a bucket’s name or retention period in InfluxDB using the InfluxDB UI or the influx CLI.
View a list of all the buckets for an organization in InfluxDB using the InfluxDB UI, influx CLI, or InfluxDB HTTP API.
Delete a bucket
Delete a bucket from InfluxDB using the InfluxDB UI or the influx CLI
Manage bucket schemas
Manage explicit bucket schemas using the influx CLI or InfluxDB HTTP API. Optionally, ensure data you write follows a specific schema.
