Replicate an organization
The state of an organization consists of metadata (dashboards, buckets, and other resources) and data (time-series). An organization’s state at a point in time can be replicated to another organization by copying both metadata and data. To replicate the state of an organization:
Create a new organization using the InfluxDB Cloud sign up page. Use a different email address for the new organization.
Use an InfluxDB template to migrate metadata resources. Export all resources, like dashboards and buckets, to a template manifest with
influx export all. Then, apply the template to the new organization.
Use one of the methods below to copy data to the new organization:
Export data to CSV
- Perform a query to return all specified data.
- Save the results as CSV (to a location outside of InfluxDB Cloud).
- Write the CSV data into a bucket in the new organization
Write data with Flux
Perform a query to return all specified data.
Write results directly to a bucket in the new organization with the Flux
If writes are prevented by rate limiting,
influx write --rate-limit
flag to control the rate of writes.
For more information on rate limits in InfluxDB Cloud, see “Exceeded rate limits”.
