Update an InfluxDB stack

Use the influx apply command to update a stack with a modified template. When applying a template to an existing stack, InfluxDB checks to see if the resources in the template match existing resources. InfluxDB updates, adds, and removes resources to resolve differences between the current state of the stack and the newly applied template.

Each stack is uniquely identified by a stack ID. For information about retrieving your stack ID, see View stacks.

Provide the following:

  • Organization name or ID
  • Stack ID
  • InfluxDB template URLs to apply
influx apply \
  -o example-org \
  -u \
  -u \

Template resources are uniquely identified by their field. If errors occur when applying changes to a stack, all applied changes are reversed and the stack is returned to its previous state.

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.
