influx export all

Not supported in InfluxDB Cloud Serverless

While this command is included in the influx CLI , this functionality is not available in InfluxDB Cloud Serverless organizations powered by the InfluxDB v3 storage engine.

The influx export all command exports all resources in an organization as an InfluxDB template. For detailed examples of exporting InfluxDB templates, see Create an InfluxDB template.

To export resources as a template, you must use the Operator token created for the initial InfluxDB user or an All Access token. For information about creating an All Access API token, see Create an API token.


influx export all [flags]


Flag Description Input Type Maps to ?
-c --active-config CLI configuration to use for command string
--configs-path Path to influx CLI configurations (default ~/.influxdbv2/configs) string INFLUX_CONFIGS_PATH
-f --file Template output file. Defaults to stdout. Use .yml or .json file extensions. string
--filter Specify resources to export by labelName or resourceKind (format: --filter=labelName=example) stringArray
-h --help Help for the export all command
--host HTTP address of InfluxDB (default http://localhost:8086) string INFLUX_HOST
--http-debug Inspect communication with InfluxDB servers. string
-o --org Organization name that owns the resources (mutually exclusive with --org-id) string INFLUX_ORG
--org-id Organization ID that owns the resources (mutually exclusive with --org) string INFLUX_ORG_ID
--skip-verify Skip TLS certificate verification INFLUX_SKIP_VERIFY
-t --token API token string INFLUX_TOKEN


The following resources can be exported:

  • Bucket
  • Check
  • CheckDeadman
  • CheckThreshold
  • Dashboard
  • Label
  • NotificationEndpoint
  • NotificationEndpointHTTP
  • NotificationEndpointPagerDuty
  • NotificationEndpointSlack
  • NotificationRule
  • Task
  • Telegraf
  • Variable

For additional information on each resource, please see template resources.


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
Export all resources in an organization as a template
influx export all
Export all bucket resources as a template
influx export all --filter=resourceKind=Bucket
Export all resources associated with label Foo
influx export all --filter=labelName=Foo
Export all bucket resources and with label Foo
influx export all \
	--filter=resourceKind=Bucket \
Export all bucket or dashboard resources with label Foo
influx export all \
	--filter=resourceKind=Bucket \
	--filter=resourceKind=Dashboard \

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.
