influx replication create

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

Replication remotes and replication streams can only be configured for InfluxDB OSS.

The influx replication create command creates a new InfluxDB replication stream.

Examples

Authentication credentials

The examples below assume your InfluxDB host, organization, and token are provided by either the active influx CLI configuration or by environment variables (INFLUX_HOST, INFLUX_ORG, and INFLUX_TOKEN). 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

Create a replication stream

  1. Create a remote connection, if you haven’t already.
  2. Use influx remote list to get the ID for the remote you want to replicate data to.
    $ influx remote list
    ID			        Name		Org ID
    0ooxX0xxXo0x 	    myremote    [...]
    
  3. Create the replication:
    influx replication create \
      --name myreplication
      --local-bucket example-local-bucket
      --remote-bucket example-remote-bucket
      --remote-id 0ooxX0xxXo0x
