Delete a task with the influx CLI

Delete a task using the InfluxDB API

Use the /tasks/TASK_ID InfluxDB API endpoint to delete a task and all associated records (task runs, logs, and labels).

DELETE http://localhost:8086/api/v2/tasks/TASK_ID

To find the task ID, see how to view tasks

Once the task is deleted, InfluxDB cancels all scheduled runs of the task.

If you want to disable a task instead of delete it, see how to update the task status to inactive.
