Delete a task with the influx CLI

Use the influx task delete command to delete a task.

# Syntax
influx task delete -i <task-id>

# Example
influx task delete -i 0343698431c35000

To find the task ID, see how to view tasks

Delete a task using the InfluxDB API

Use the /tasks/TASK_ID InfluxDB API endpoint to delete a task and all associated records (task runs, logs, and labels).

DELETE http://localhost:8086/api/v2/tasks/TASK_ID

To find the task ID, see how to view tasks

Once the task is deleted, InfluxDB cancels all scheduled runs of the task.

If you want to disable a task instead of delete it, see how to update the task status to inactive.

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.
