InfluxDB stacks

InfluxDB stacks are stateful InfluxDB templates that let you add, update, and remove templated resources over time, avoid duplicating resources when applying the same or similar templates more than once, and apply changes to distributed instances of InfluxDB OSS or InfluxDB Cloud.

Ideal use cases for InfluxDB stacks

Stacks help save time and effort in the following use cases:

Actively develop and extend templates

InfluxDB stacks aid in developing and maintaining InfluxDB templates. Stacks let you modify and update template manifests and apply those changes in any stack that uses the template.

Apply updates from source-controlled templates

You can use a variety of InfluxDB templates from many different sources including Community Templates or self-built custom templates. As templates are updated over time, stacks allow template users to gracefully apply updates without creating duplicate resources.

Apply template updates across multiple InfluxDB instances

In many cases, users have more than one instance of InfluxDB running and apply the same template to each separate instance. By using stacks, you can make changes to a stack on one instance, export the stack as a template and then apply the changes to your other InfluxDB instances.
