Supported Platforms

Library works in web, server, and Flutter.

Installation

Dart developer can add it as a dependency in their pubspec.yaml:

dependencies:
  influxdb_client: ^2.2.0

Import

import 'package:influxdb_client/api.dart';

Usage

Important: You should call close() at the end of your application to release allocated resources.

Creating a client

Specify url and token via parameters:

var client = InfluxDBClient(
    url: 'http://localhost:8086',
    token: 'my-token',
    org: 'my-org',
    bucket: 'my-bucket',
    debug: true);

Client Options

OptionDescriptionTypeDefault
urlInfluxDB urlStringnone
bucketDefault destination bucket for writesStringnone
orgDefault organization bucket for writesStringnone
debugEnable verbose logging of underlying http clientboolfalse

InfluxDB 1.8 API compatibility

  var client = InfluxDBClient(
    url: 'http://localhost:8086',
    username: '...',
    password: '...',
    org: 'my-org',
    bucket: 'my-bucket',
    debug: true);

Writes

The WriteApi supports asynchronous writes into InfluxDB 2.x.

The data could be written as:

  1. String that is formatted as a InfluxDB's Line Protocol
  2. Data Point structure
  3. Array of above items

The following example demonstrates how to write data with different type of records. For further information see docs and examples.

import 'package:influxdb_client/api.dart';

main() async {
  var client = InfluxDBClient(
      url: 'http://localhost:8086',
      token: 'my-token',
      org: 'my-org',
      bucket: 'my-bucket',
      debugEnabled: true);

  var writeApi = WriteService(client);

  var point = Point('h2o')
      .addTag('location', 'Prague')
      .addField('level', 1.12345)
      .time(DateTime.now().toUtc());

  await writeApi.write(point).then((value) {
    print('Write completed 1');
  }).catchError((exception) {
    // error block
    print("Handle write error here!");
    print(exception);
  });

}

WriteOptions

Settings for WriteService like batching, default tags, retry strategy, precision, can customized in `WriteOptions'.

Example how to modify default WriteOptions:

  var client = InfluxDBClient(
      url: 'http://localhost:8086',
      token: 'my-token',
      org: 'my-org',
      bucket: 'my-bucket',
      debug: true);

  var writeApi = client.getWriteService(WriteOptions().merge(
      precision: WritePrecision.s,
      batchSize: 100,
      flushInterval: 5000,
      gzip: true));

Queries

The result retrieved by QueryService could be formatted as a:

Query to FluxRecord


import 'package:influxdb_client/api.dart';

void main() async {
  var client = InfluxDBClient(
    url: 'http://localhost:8086',
    token: 'my-token',
    org: 'my-org',
    bucket: 'my-bucket',
  );

  var queryService = client.getQueryService();

  var recordStream = await queryService.query('''
  from(bucket: "my-bucket")
  |> range(start: 0)
  |> filter(fn: (r) => r["_measurement"] == "cpu")
  |> filter(fn: (r) => r["cpu"] == "cpu-total")
  |> aggregateWindow(every: 1m, fn: mean, createEmpty: false)
  |> yield(name: "mean")
  ''');

  var count = 0;
  await recordStream.forEach((record) {
    print(
        'record: ${count++} ${record['_time']}: ${record['host']} ${record['cpu']} ${record['_value']}');
  });

  client.close();
}

Query to String


import 'package:influxdb_client/api.dart';

main() async {
  var client = InfluxDBClient(url: 'http://localhost:8086',
      token: 'my-token', org: 'my-org', bucket: 'my-bucket');

  var queryService = client.getQueryService(client);

  var rawCSV = await queryService.queryRaw('''
      from(bucket: "my-bucket")
        |> range(start: v.timeRangeStart, stop: v.timeRangeStop)
        |> filter(fn: (r) => r["_measurement"] == "h2o")
        |> aggregateWindow(every: v.windowPeriod, fn: mean, createEmpty: false)
        |> yield(name: "mean")''');

  print(rawCSV);
  
}


Parameterized queries

InfluxDB Cloud supports Parameterized Queries that let you dynamically change values in a query using the InfluxDB API. Parameterized queries make Flux queries more reusable and can also be used to help prevent injection attacks.

InfluxDB Cloud inserts the params object into the Flux query as a Flux record named params. Use dot or bracket notation to access parameters in the params record in your Flux query. Parameterized Flux queries support only int , float, and string data types. To convert the supported data types into other Flux basic data types, use Flux type conversion functions.

Parameterized query example:

:warning: Parameterized Queries are supported only in InfluxDB Cloud, currently there is no support in InfluxDB OSS.


import 'package:influxdb_client/api.dart';

void main() async {
  var client = InfluxDBClient(
    url: 'http://localhost:8086',
    token: 'my-token',
    org: 'my-org',
    bucket: 'my-bucket',
  );

  var queryService = client.getQueryService();

  var queryService = client.getQueryService();
  var queryString = '''
       from(bucket: params.bucketParam)
            |> range(start: duration(v: params.startParam))
            |> filter(fn: (r) => r["_measurement"] == "weather" 
                             and r["location"] == "Prague")''';
  var queryParams = {'bucketParam':'my-bucket', 'startParam':'-10d'};
  var query = Query(query: queryString, params: queryParams);

  // Using string for query and Map for params
  var recordMap = await queryService.query(queryString, params: queryParams);

  // Using Query class
  var recordClass = await queryService.query(query);

  client.close();
}

Delete points

The DeleteService supports deletes points from an InfluxDB bucket.

InfluxDB uses an InfluxQL-like predicate syntax to determine what data points to delete.

import 'package:influxdb_client/api.dart';

void main() async {
  var client = InfluxDBClient(
      url: 'http://localhost:8086',
      token: 'my-token',
      org: 'my-org',
      bucket: 'my-bucket',
      debugEnabled: true);

  await client
      .getDeleteService()
      .delete(
      predicate: '_measurement="temperature"',
      start: '1970-01-01T00:00:00.000000001Z',
      stop: DateTime.now().toUtc().toIso8601String(),
      bucket: 'my-bucket',
      org: 'my-org')
      .catchError((e) => print(e));

  var queryService = client.getQueryService();

  var fluxQuery = '''
  from(bucket: "my-bucket")
  |> range(start: -1d)
  |> filter(fn: (r) => r["_measurement"] == "temperature")
  ''';

  // should be empty
  var records = await queryService.query(fluxQuery);
  assert(await records.isEmpty);

  client.close();
}

The following example demonstrates how to use a InfluxDB 2.x Management API to create new bucket. For further information see docs and examples.

import 'package:influxdb_client/api.dart';

void main() async {
// Initialize Client and API
  var client = InfluxDBClient(
      url: 'http://localhost:8086', token: 'my-token', org: 'my-org');

  //check server availability
  await client.getPingApi().getPing();

  var orgs = await client.getOrganizationsApi().getOrgs();
  var myOrgId = orgs.orgs.first.id;

  var bucketsApi = client.getBucketsApi();
  var bucketName = 'bucket-my-org';

  // find and delete bucket 'bucket-my-org'
  var buckets = await bucketsApi.getBuckets(name: bucketName);
  if (buckets.buckets.isNotEmpty) {
    var bucketID = buckets.buckets.first.id;
    await bucketsApi.deleteBucketsID(bucketID);
    print('Bucket $bucketID was deleted.');
  }

// Bucket configuration
  var request = PostBucketRequest(
      orgID: myOrgId,
      name: bucketName,
      retentionRules: [
        RetentionRule(type: RetentionRuleTypeEnum.expire, everySeconds: 3600)
      ]);

  var bucket = await bucketsApi.postBuckets(request);

// Create Authorization with permission to read/write created bucket
  var bucketResource =
  Resource(type: ResourceTypeEnum.buckets, id: bucket.id, orgID: myOrgId);

// Authorization configuration
  var auth = AuthorizationPostRequest(
      description: 'Authorization to read/write bucket:${bucket.name}',
      orgID: myOrgId,
      permissions: [
        Permission(action: PermissionActionEnum.read, resource: bucketResource),
        Permission(action: PermissionActionEnum.write, resource: bucketResource)
      ]);

// Create Authorization
  var authorizationsApi = client.getAuthorizationsApi();
  var authorization = await authorizationsApi.postAuthorizations(auth);

// Print token
  var token = authorization.token;
  print('The bucket: \'${bucket.name}\' is successfully created.');
  print('The following token can be used to read/write: ${token}');

  client.close();
}


Proxy configuration

By default the HttpClient uses the proxy configuration available from the environment, see findProxyFromEnvironment.

export http_proxy="PROXY http://localhost:8080"

Initialize a proxy from code:

HttpClient httpClient = HttpClient();
httpClient.findProxy = (url) => "PROXY localhost:8080";
var client = IOClient(httpClient);

var influxdb = InfluxDBClient(
    url: 'http://localhost:8086',
    token: 'my-token',
    org: 'my-org',
    bucket: 'my-bucket',
    client: client,
    followRedirects: true,
    maxRedirects: 5,
    debug: true);

To turn off the use of proxies set the findProxy property to null.

Client automatically follows HTTP redirects for all GET and HEAD requests with status codes 301, 302, 303, 307, 308. The default redirect policy is to follow up to 5 consecutive requests.

write and query APIs also support an automatic redirect of POST requests. You can disable followRedirects and change default maxRedirects on InfluxDBClient instance.
