influxdb.select() function

The influxdb.select() function is a user-contributed function maintained by the package author and can be updated or removed at any time.

The influxdb.select() function is an alternate implementation of from(), range(), filter() and pivot() that returns pivoted query results and masks the _measurement, _start, and _stop columns. Results are similar to those returned by InfluxQL SELECT statements.

Function type: Input

import "contrib/jsternberg/influxdb"

influxdb.select(
  from: "example-bucket",
  start: -1d,
  stop: now(),
  m: "example-measurement",
  fields: [],
  where: (r) => true,
  host: "https://example.com",
  org: "example-org",
  token: "MySuP3rSecr3Tt0k3n"
)

Parameters

host, org, and token parameters are only required when querying data from a different organization or a remote InfluxDB instance.

from

Required Name of the bucket to query.

Data type: String

start

Required Earliest time to include in results. Results include points that match the specified start time. Use a relative duration, absolute time, or integer (Unix timestamp in seconds). For example, -1h, 2019-08-28T22:00:00Z, or 1567029600. Durations are relative to now().

Data type: Duration | Time | Integer

stop

Latest time to include in results. Results exclude points that match the specified stop time. Use a relative duration, absolute time, or integer (Unix timestamp in seconds). For example, -1h, 2019-08-28T22:00:00Z, or 1567029600. Durations are relative to now().

Defaults to now().

Data type: Duration | Time | Integer

m

Required Name of the measurement to query.

Data type: String

fields

List of fields to query. Returns all fields when list is empty or unspecified. Defaults to [].

Data type: Array of Strings

where

A single argument predicate function that evaluates true or false and filters results based on tag values. Records are passed to the function before fields are pivoted into columns. Records that evaluate to true are included in the output tables. Records that evaluate to null or false are not included in the output tables. Defaults to (r) => true.

Data type: Function

Records evaluated in fn functions are represented by r, short for “record” or “row”.

host

URL of the InfluxDB instance to query. See InfluxDB URLs.

Data type: String

org

Organization name.

Data type: String

token

InfluxDB authentication token.

Data type: String

Examples

Query a single field
import "contrib/jsternberg/influxdb"

influxdb.select(
  from: "example-bucket",
  start: -1d,
  m: "example-measurement",
  fields: ["field1"]
)
Query multiple fields
import "contrib/jsternberg/influxdb"

influxdb.select(
  from: "example-bucket",
  start: -1d,
  m: "example-measurement",
  fields: ["field1", "field2", "field3"]
)
Query all fields and filter by tags
import "contrib/jsternberg/influxdb"

influxdb.select(
  from: "example-bucket",
  start: -1d,
  m: "example-measurement",
  where: (r) => r.host == "host1" and r.region == "us-west"
)
Query data from a remote InfluxDB Cloud instance
import "contrib/jsternberg/influxdb"
import "influxdata/influxdb/secrets"

token = secrets.get(key: "INFLUXDB_CLOUD_TOKEN")

influxdb.select(
  from: "example-bucket",
  start: -1d,
  m: "example-measurement",
  fields: ["field1", "field2"],
  host: "https://cloud2.influxdata.com",
  org: "example-org",
  token: token
)
