Process data with InfluxDB tasks

Process and analyze your data with tasks in the InfluxDB task engine. Use tasks (scheduled Flux queries) to input a data stream and then analyze, modify, and act on the data accordingly.

Discover how to create and manage tasks using the InfluxDB user interface (UI) and the influx command line interface (CLI). Find examples of data downsampling, anomaly detection (Coming), alerting (Coming), and other common tasks.

Tasks replace InfluxDB v1.x continuous queries.

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.
