influx v1 shell

The influx v1 shell subcommand starts an InfluxQL shell (REPL).

Set up database and retention policy (DBRP) mapping

InfluxQL queries require a database and retention policy to query data. In InfluxDB Cloud, databases and retention policies have been combined and replaced with buckets. To use the InfluxQL to query an InfluxDB Cloud bucket, first map your DBRP combinations to an appropriate bucket. For more information, see Query data with InfluxQL.
