columns() function

columns() returns the column labels in each input table.

For each input table, columns outputs a table with the same group key columns and a new column containing the column labels in the input table. Each row in an output table contains the group key value and the label of one column of the input table. Each output table has the same number of rows as the number of columns of the input table.

Function type signature
(<-tables: stream[A], ?column: string) => stream[B] where A: Record, B: Record
For more information, see Function type signatures.

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.
