Replication remotes and replication streams can only be configured for InfluxDB OSS.

The influx remote update command updates an existing InfluxDB remote connection used for replicating data.

Authentication credentials

The examples below assume your InfluxDB host, organization, and token are provided by either the active influx CLI configuration or by environment variables (INFLUX_HOST, INFLUX_ORG, and INFLUX_TOKEN). 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

Update a remote

  1. Use influx remote list to get the ID for the remote you want to update.
    $ influx remote list
    ID			        Name		Org ID
    0ooxX0xxXo0x 	    myremote    [...]
  2. Use the following command to update the remote:
    influx remote update \
      --id 0ooxX0xxXo0x
      --name new-example-name
      --description new-example-description
      --remote-api-token myN3wS3crE7t0k3n==
      --remote-org-id new-example-org-id
