Write data with no-code third-party technologies

This page documents an earlier version of InfluxDB. InfluxDB v2.6 is the latest stable version. View this page in the v2.6 documentation.

A number of third-party technologies can be configured to send line protocol directly to InfluxDB.

If you’re using any of the following technologies, check out the handy links below to configure these technologies to write data to InfluxDB (no additional software to download or install).

Many third-party integrations are community contributions. If there’s an integration missing from the list below, please open a docs issue to let us know.

Configure Vector

  1. View the Vector documentation:
  1. Under Configuration, click v2 to view configuration settings.
  2. Scroll down to How It Works for more detail:

Configure Apache NiFi

See the InfluxDB Processors for Apache NiFi Readme for details.

Configure OpenHAB

See the InfluxDB Persistence Readme for details.

Configure Apache JMeter

To configure Apache JMeter, complete the following steps in InfluxDB and JMeter.

In InfluxDB
  1. Find the name of your organization (needed to create a bucket and token).
  2. Create a bucket using the influx CLI and name it jmeter.
  3. Create a token.
In JMeter
  1. Create a Backend Listener using the InfluxDBBackendListenerClient implementation.
  2. In the Backend Listener implementation field, enter:
    org.apache.jmeter.visualizers.backend.influxdb.influxdbBackendListenerClient
    
  3. Under Parameters, specify the following:
    • influxdbMetricsSender:
      org.apache.jmeter.visualizers.backend.influxdb.HttpMetricsSender
      
    • influxdbUrl: (include the bucket and org you created in InfluxDB)
      http://localhost:8086/api/v2/write?org=my-org&bucket=jmeter
      
    • application: InfluxDB2
    • influxdbToken: your InfluxDB API token
    • Include additional parameters as needed.
  4. Click Add to add the InfluxDBBackendListenerClient implementation.

Configure Apache Pulsar

See InfluxDB sink connector for details.

InfluxDB Cloud backed by InfluxDB IOx

All InfluxDB Cloud organizations created on or after January 31, 2023 are backed by the new InfluxDB IOx storage engine. Check the right column of your InfluxDB Cloud organization homepage to see which InfluxDB storage engine you’re using.

If powered by IOx, this is the correct documentation.

If powered by TSM, see the TSM-based InfluxDB Cloud documentation.
