The influx stacks update command updates an InfluxDB stack.

Usage

influx stacks update [flags]

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 If you apply the outdated template, InfluxDB will revert the updates and remove the added resources.

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
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 https://example.com/template-1.yml \
  --template-url https://example.com/template-2.yml
Update a stack with new resources to manage
influx stacks update \
	--stack-id ab12cd34ef56 \
	--addResource=Bucket=12ab34cd56ef \
	--addResource=Dashboard=98zy76xw54vu
Update a stack with new resources and export the stack as a template
influx stacks update \
	--stack-id ab12cd34ef56 \
	--addResource=Bucket=12ab34cd56ef \
	--export-file /path/to/template-file.yml
