Use the Interactive Flux REPL
This page documents an earlier version of InfluxDB. InfluxDB v2.6 is the latest stable version. View this page in the v2.6 documentation.
Use the Flux REPL (Read–Eval–Print Loop) to execute Flux scripts and interact with InfluxDB and other data sources. Build the REPL from the Flux source code.
Flux REPL supports running Flux scripts against InfluxDB 1.8+.
Build the REPL
To use the Flux REPL, build it from source using the Flux repository. For instructions, see the Flux repository README.
Use the REPL

To open a new REPL session, run:
Query data from InfluxDB
To query data from InfluxDB (local or remote), provide the host, organization, and token parameters
from( bucket: "example-bucket", host: "http://localhost:8086", org: "example-org", token: "My5uP3rS3cRetT0k3n", )
Multi-line scripts like the example above work when pasted into the REPL. Pasting newlines from the clipboard is allowed. However, you cannot enter newline characters directly from the keyboard.
Exit the REPL
Exit the REPL by pressing Control + D.
