InfluxDB 2.0

This code sample demonstrates how to use the InfluxDB 2.0 query API to periodically query InfluxDB and publish the results to a Kafka topic.

How to run

Create a Quix account or log in and visit the Code Samples to use this project.

Clicking Deploy on the Sample, deploys a pre-built container in Quix. Complete the environment variables to configure the container.

Clicking Edit code on the Sample, forks the project to your own Git repo so you can customize it before deploying.

Environment Variables

The code sample uses the following environment variables:

  • output: This is the ouput topic that will receive the stream (Default: influxdb, Required: True)
  • task_interval: Interval to run query. Must be within the InfluxDB notation; 1s, 1m, 1h, 1d, 1w, 1mo, 1y (Default: 5m, Required: True)
  • INFLUXDB_HOST: Host address for the InfluxDB instance. (Default:, Required: True)
  • INFLUXDB_TOKEN: Authentication token to access InfluxDB. (Default: <TOKEN>, Required: True)
  • INFLUXDB_ORG: Organization name in InfluxDB. (Default: <ORG>, Required: False)
  • INFLUXDB_BUCKET: Bucket name in InfluxDB where data is stored. (Default: <BUCKET>, Required: True)
  • INFLUXDB_MEASUREMENT_NAME: The InfluxDB measurement to read data from. If not specified, the name of the output topic will be used (Default: <INSERT MEASUREMENT>, Required: False)
