Run a task
InfluxDB data processing tasks generally run in defined intervals or at a specific time,
however, you can manually run a task from the InfluxDB user interface (UI) or the
influx command line interface (CLI).
Run a task from the InfluxDB UI
In the navigation menu on the left, select Tasks.
Hover over the task you want to run and click the icon.
Select Run Task.
Run a task with the influx CLI
influx task run retry command to run a task.
To run a task from the
influx CLI, the task must have already run at least once.
# List all tasks to find the ID of the task to run influx task list # Use the task ID to list previous runs of the task influx task run list --task-id=0000000000000000 # Use the task ID and run ID to retry a run influx task run retry --task-id=0000000000000000 --run-id=0000000000000000
