Update an organization

Use the influx command line interface (CLI) or the InfluxDB user interface (UI) to update an organization.

Note that updating an organization’s name will affect any assets that reference the organization by name, including the following:

  • Queries
  • Dashboards
  • Tasks
  • Telegraf configurations
  • Templates

If you change an organization name, be sure to update the organization in the above places as well.

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.
