influx delete

The influx delete command deletes points from an InfluxDB bucket. Identify points to delete using delete predicate syntax.

In InfluxDB OSS 2.0rc, the influx delete --predicate flag has been disabled. The -p, --predicate flag is supported in InfluxDB Cloud and InfluxDB OSS 2.0 beta 16 or earlier.

Running influx delete without the -p or --predicate flag deletes all data with timestamps between the specified --start and --stop times in the specified bucket.
