Examples: how to apply a template or stack

The examples below assume your InfluxDB host, organization, and token are provided by the active influx CLI configuration. If you do not have a CLI configuration set up, use the appropriate flags to provide these required credentials.

Apply a template from a file
influx apply --file path/to/template.json
Apply a template from a URL
influx apply --file https://raw.githubusercontent.com/influxdata/community-templates/master/docker/docker.yml
Apply a stack that has associated templates

To apply all templates associated with a stack ID to a new stack:

influx apply --stack-id $STACK_ID
Apply a template to a stack
influx apply --file path/to/template.json --stack-id $STACK_ID
Apply multiple template files together
influx apply \
  --file path/to/template_1.json \
  --file path/to/template_2.yml
Apply a template from stdin
cat template.json | influx apply --encoding json
Apply all templates in a directory
influx apply --file path/to/template_directory
Recursively apply templates from a directory
influx apply --recurse --file path/to/template_directory
Apply templates from multiple sources
influx apply \
  --file path/to/template.yml
  --file path/to/templates_directory
  --file https://example.com/template.json
Apply a template, but skip resources
# The following example skips all buckets and the dashboard
# whose metadata.name field matches "example-dashboard".

# Filter format:
#	--filter=kind=Bucket
#	--filter=resource=Label:$Label_TMPL_NAME

influx apply \
	--file path/to/template.yml \
	--filter kind=Bucket \
	--filter resource=Dashboard:example-dashboard
