InfluxDB templates

InfluxDB templates are prepackaged InfluxDB configurations that contain everything from dashboards and Telegraf configurations to notifications and alerts. Use InfluxDB templates to quickly set up a fresh instance of InfluxDB, back up your dashboard configuration, or share your configuration with the InfluxData community.

InfluxDB templates do the following:

  • Reduce setup time
  • Facilitate secure, portable, source-controlled InfluxDB platform states.
  • Simplify sharing and using pre-built InfluxDB solutions.

Template manifests

A template consists of a single file known as a manifest that defines the InfluxDB state and associated resources. Template manifests support the following formats:

Template manifests are compatible with Kubernetes Custom Resource Definitions (CRD).

The metadata.name field in manifests uniquely identifies each resource in the template. metadata.name values must be DNS-1123 compliant. If resources in the template depend on other InfluxDB resources, all dependencies must be included in the template.

See Create an InfluxDB template for information about generating template manifests.

Template resources

Include the following resources in a template:

  • buckets
  • checks
  • dashboards
  • dashboard variables
  • labels
  • notification endpoints
  • notification rules
  • tasks
  • Telegraf configurations

Stacks

InfluxDB stacks are stateful InfluxDB templates. When you apply a template, InfluxDB associates resources in the template with a stack. Use stacks to add, update, or remove templated resources over time.

For more information, see InfluxDB Stacks below.

Introducing InfluxDB Clustered

A highly available InfluxDB 3.0 cluster on your own infrastructure.

InfluxDB Clustered is a highly available InfluxDB 3.0 cluster built for high write and query workloads on your own infrastructure.

InfluxDB Clustered is currently in limited availability and is only available to a limited group of InfluxData customers. If interested in being part of the limited access group, please contact the InfluxData Sales team.

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.
