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 script using raw Flux
export FLUX_SCRIPT='
  from(bucket: "example-bucket")
    |> range(start: -10h)
    |> filter(fn: (r) => r._measurement == "m")
    |> aggregateWindow(every: 1h, fn: mean)
    |> to(bucket: "default-ds-1d", org: "my-org")
'

influx scripts create \
  -n "example-script" \
  -d "a simple example" \
  -l "flux" \
  -s $FLUX_SCRIPT
Create a script from a file
influx scripts create \
  -n "example-script" \
  -d "a simple example" \
  -l "flux" \
  -f /path/to/example-script.flux
