InfluxDB stacks

Use InfluxDB stacks to manage InfluxDB templates. When you apply a template, InfluxDB associates resources in the template with a stack. Use the stack to add, update, or remove InfluxDB templates over time.

Key differences between stacks and templates:

  • A template defines a set of resources in a text file outside of InfluxDB. When you apply a template, a stack is automatically created to manage the applied template.
  • Stacks add, modify or delete resources in an instance.
  • Templates do not recognize resources in an instance. All resources in the template are added, creating duplicate resources if a resource already exists.
