The examples below assume your InfluxDB host, organization, and token are provided by the active influx CLI configuration. If you do not have a CLI configuration set up, use the appropriate flags to provide these required credentials.

Create a task using raw Flux
export FLUX_TASK='
  option task = {
    name: "Example Task",
    every: 1d
  }

  from(bucket: "example-bucket")
    |> range(start: -task.every)
    |> filter(fn: (r) => (r._measurement == "m")
    |> aggregateWindow(every: 1h, fn: mean)
    |> to(bucket: "default-ds-1d", org: "my-org")
