InfluxDB stacks

Use InfluxDB stacks to manage InfluxDB templates. When you apply a template, InfluxDB associates resources in the template with a stack. Use the stack to add, update, or remove InfluxDB templates over time.

Key differences between stacks and templates:

  • A template defines a set of resources in a text file outside of InfluxDB. When you apply a template, a stack is automatically created to manage the applied template.
  • Stacks add, modify or delete resources in an instance.
  • Templates do not recognize resources in an instance. All resources in the template are added, creating duplicate resources if a resource already exists.

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.
