The InfluxDB SQL implementation uses the POSIX regular expression syntax and supports the following regular expression functions:

regexp_match

Returns a list of regular expression matches in a string.

regexp_match(str, regexp, flags)
Arguments
  • str: String expression to operate on. Can be a constant, column, or function, and any combination of string operators.
  • regexp: Regular expression to match against. Can be a constant, column, or function.
  • flags: Regular expression flags that control the behavior of the regular expression. The following flags are supported.
    • i: (insensitive) Ignore case when matching.

regexp_replace

regexp_replace(str, regexp, replacement, flags)
Arguments
  • str: String expression to operate on. Can be a constant, column, or function, and any combination of string operators.
  • regexp: Regular expression to match against. Can be a constant, column, or function.
  • replacement: Replacement string expression. Can be a constant, column, or function, and any combination of string operators.

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.
