influx replication create

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

The influx replication create command creates a new InfluxDB replication stream.

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

Create a replication stream

  1. Create a remote connection, if you haven’t already.
  2. Use influx remote list to get the ID for the remote you want to replicate data to.
    $ influx remote list
    ID			        Name		Org ID
    0ooxX0xxXo0x 	    myremote    [...]
  3. Create the replication:
    influx replication create \
      --name myreplication
      --local-bucket example-local-bucket
      --remote-bucket example-remote-bucket
      --remote-id 0ooxX0xxXo0x
