InfluxDB 3.0

This code sample demonstrates how to consume data from a Kafka topic in Quix and persist the data to an InfluxDB 3.0 database using the InfluxDB write API.

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:

  • input: This is the input topic (Default: detection-result, Required: True)
  • TIMESTAMP_COLUMN: This is the column in your data that represents the timestamp in nanoseconds. Defaults to use the message timestamp received from the broker if not supplied. Case sensitive. (Default: `, Required:False`)
  • 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_DATABASE: Database name in InfluxDB where data should be stored. (Default: <DATABASE>, Required: True)
  • INFLUXDB_TAG_KEYS: Keys to be used as tags when writing data to InfluxDB. These are columns that are available in the input topic. (Default: ['tag1', 'tag2'], Required: False)
  • INFLUXDB_FIELD_KEYS: Keys to be used as fields when writing data to InfluxDB. These are columns that are available in the input topic. (Default: ['field1', 'field2'], Required: True)
  • INFLUXDB_MEASUREMENT_NAME: The InfluxDB measurement to write data to. If not specified, the name of the input topic will be used. (Default: measurement1, Required: False)

Requirements / Prerequisites

You will need to have an InfluxDB 3.0 instance available and an API authentication token.
