-h --help Help for the list command
--hide-headers Hide table headers (default false) INFLUX_HIDE_HEADERS
--host HTTP address of InfluxDB (default http://localhost:8086) string INFLUX_HOST
--http-debug Inspect communication with InfluxDB servers. string
-i --id Task ID string
--json Output data as JSON (default false) INFLUX_OUTPUT_JSON
-o --org Task organization name string INFLUX_ORG
--org-id Task organization ID string INFLUX_ORG_ID
--run-limit Maximum number of failed runs to retry per task (1-500, default 100) integer

-t --token API token string INFLUX_TOKEN


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

Required permissions

Use an All Access token to retry failed tasks.

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.
