Export an updated template

To prevent accidental changes, we strongly recommend exporting a new template any time you add additional resources to a stack using the --addResource flag with the influx stack update command. The updated stack will differ from the previous template. If you apply the outdated template, InfluxDB will revert the updates and remove the added resources.


Authentication credentials

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.

Update a stack with a name and description
influx stack update \
  -i ab12cd34ef56 \
  -n "New stack name" \
  -d "New stack description"
Update a stack with a name and URLs to associate with stack
influx stack update \
  -i ab12cd34ef56 \
  -n "New stack name" \
  --template-url \
Update a stack with new resources to manage
influx stacks update \
	--stack-id ab12cd34ef56 \
	--addResource=Bucket=12ab34cd56ef \
Update a stack with new resources and export the stack as a template
influx stacks update \
