influx export all

The influx export all command exports all resources in an organization as an InfluxDB template. For detailed examples of exporting InfluxDB templates, see Create an InfluxDB template.

To export resources as a template, you must use the Operator token created for the initial InfluxDB user or an All-Access token. For information about creating an All-Access API token, see Create an API token.
