Reference

Table of Contents

Classes

  • influxdb: Installs, configures, and performs initial setup of InfluxDB 2.x
  • influxdb::profile::toml: Installs the toml-rb gem inside Puppet server and agent

Resource types

  • influxdb_auth: Manages authentication tokens in InfluxDB
  • influxdb_bucket: Manages InfluxDB buckets
  • influxdb_dbrp: Manages dbrps, or database and retention policy mappings. These provide backwards compatibilty for 1.x queries. Note that these are automatically created by the influxdb_bucket resource, so it isn't necessary to use this resource unless you need to customize them.
  • influxdb_label: Manages labels in InfluxDB
  • influxdb_org: Manages organizations in InfluxDB
  • influxdb_setup: Manages initial setup of InfluxDB. It is recommended to use the influxdb::install class instead of this resource directly.
  • influxdb_user: Manages users in InfluxDB. Note that currently, passwords can only be set upon creating the user and must be updated manually using the cli. A user must be added to an organization to be able to log in.
