influx CLI from the
influxdata/influx-cli GitHub repository.
influx write skip-header parsing

write command no longer supports
as short-hand for
Stricter input validation for
influx template commands
stacks commands now raise errors when CLI options fail to parse instead of silently discarding bad inputs.
This change was made to help users debug when their commands fail to execute as expected.
Server-side template summarization and validation
template validate commands now use an API request to the server to perform their logic, instead of performing the work on the client-side.
Offline summarization and validation is no longer supported.
This change was made to avoid significant code duplication between
influx CLI, and to allow server-side template logic to evolve without requiring coordinated CLI changes.
influx stacks --json output conventions
The output of
influx stacks --json previously used an UpperCamelCase naming convention for most keys.
The command now uses lowerCamelCase consistently for all objects keys, matching the schema returned by the API.
