If you do not have a CLI configuration set up or the environment variables set, include these required credentials for each command with the following flags:

  • --host: InfluxDB host
  • -o, --org or --org-id: InfluxDB organization name or ID
  • -t, --token: InfluxDB API token
Export buckets by ID
influx export --buckets 0Xx0oox00XXoxxoo1,0Xx0oox00XXoxxoo2
