InfluxDB stacks

This page documents an earlier version of InfluxDB. InfluxDB v2.2 is the latest stable version. View this page in the v2.2 documentation.

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.
