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
Click the Tasks icon in the left navigation to view the lists of tasks.
Hover over the task you want to run and click the icon.
Select Run Task.
Run a task with the influx CLI
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
