Convert results to JSON

This example uses NOAA water sample data.

Send each record to a URL endpoint using the HTTP POST method. This example uses json.encode() to convert a value into JSON bytes, then uses http.post() to send them to a URL endpoint.

The following query:

  • Uses filter() to filter the average_temperature measurement.
  • Uses mean() to calculate the average value from results.
  • Uses map() to create a new column, jsonStr, and build a JSON object using column values from the query. It then byte-encodes the JSON object and stores it as a string in the jsonStr column.
  • Uses http.post() to send the jsonStr value from each record to an HTTP endpoint.
import "http"
import "json"

from(bucket: "noaa")
    |> filter(fn: (r) => r._measurement == "average_temperature")
    |> mean()
    |> map(fn: (r) => ({r with jsonStr: string(v: json.encode(v: {"location": r.location, "mean": r._value}))}))
    |> map(
        fn: (r) => ({
            r with
            status_code: http.post(
                url: "http://somehost.com/",
                headers: {x: "a", y: "b"},
                data: bytes(v: r.jsonStr)
            )
        })
    )

The future of Flux

Flux is going into maintenance mode. You can continue using it as you currently are without any changes to your code.

Flux is going into maintenance mode and will not be supported in InfluxDB 3.0. This was a decision based on the broad demand for SQL and the continued growth and adoption of InfluxQL. We are continuing to support Flux for users in 1.x and 2.x so you can continue using it with no changes to your code. If you are interested in transitioning to InfluxDB 3.0 and want to future-proof your code, we suggest using InfluxQL.
