List buckets

List all buckets in the current organization.

Flux functions: buckets(), rename(), keep()

buckets()
    |> rename(columns: {"name": "_value"})
    |> keep(columns: ["_value"])

List measurements

List all measurements in a specified bucket.

Flux package: InfluxDB v1
Flux functions: v1.measurements()

import "influxdata/influxdb/v1"

v1.measurements(bucket: "bucket-name")

List fields in a measurement

List all fields in a specified bucket and measurement.

Flux package: InfluxDB v1
Flux functions: v1.measurementTagValues()

import "influxdata/influxdb/v1"

v1.measurementTagValues(
    bucket: "bucket-name",
    measurement: "measurement-name",
    tag: "_field",
)

List unique tag values

List all unique tag values for a specific tag in a specified bucket. The example below lists all unique values of the host tag.

Flux package: InfluxDB v1
Flux functions: v1.tagValues()

import "influxdata/influxdb/v1"

v1.tagValues(bucket: "bucket-name", tag: "host")

List Docker containers

List all Docker containers when using the Docker Telegraf plugin.

Telegraf plugin: Docker
Flux package: InfluxDB v1
Flux functions: v1.tagValues()

import "influxdata/influxdb/v1"

v1.tagValues(bucket: "bucket-name", tag: "container_name")

List Kubernetes pods

List all Kubernetes pods when using the Kubernetes Telegraf plugin.

Telegraf plugin: Kubernetes
Flux package: InfluxDB v1
Flux functions: v1.measurementTagValues()

import "influxdata/influxdb/v1"

v1.measurementTagValues(
    bucket: "bucket-name",
    measurement: "kubernetes_pod_container",
    tag: "pod_name",
)

List Kubernetes nodes

List all Kubernetes nodes when using the Kubernetes Telegraf plugin.

Telegraf plugin: Kubernetes
Flux package: InfluxDB v1
Flux functions: v1.measurementTagValues()

import "influxdata/influxdb/v1"

The future of Flux

Flux is going into maintenance mode. You can continue using it as you currently are without any changes to your code.

Flux is going into maintenance mode and will not be supported in InfluxDB 3.0. This was a decision based on the broad demand for SQL and the continued growth and adoption of InfluxQL. We are continuing to support Flux for users in 1.x and 2.x so you can continue using it with no changes to your code. If you are interested in transitioning to InfluxDB 3.0 and want to future-proof your code, we suggest using InfluxQL.
