Run a task

InfluxDB data processing tasks generally run in defined intervals or at a specific time, however, you can manually run a task from the InfluxDB user interface (UI) or the influx command line interface (CLI).

Run a task from the InfluxDB UI

  1. Click the Tasks icon in the left navigation to view the lists of tasks.

  2. Hover over the task you want to run and click the icon.

  3. Select Run Task.

Run a task with the influx CLI

Use the influx task run retry command to run a task.

To run a task from the influx CLI, the task must have already run at least once.

# List all tasks to find the ID of the task to run
influx task find

# Use the task ID to list previous runs of the task
influx task run find --task-id=0000000000000000

# Use the task ID and run ID to retry a run
influx task run retry --task-id=0000000000000000 --run-id=0000000000000000
