Buckets amount limit


Is there any limit on the number of buckets ? (cloud version)

I’m planning a system that each users will have dashboard, the data in the backend is being saved in Influxdb.
If I’ll split each users’s data to different bucket I can give the users direct access to read it’s Influxdb data.

  • The system is planned to support ~20,000 users.
  • The information that is saved for each user is not massive (a few measurements per second)

Is such planning possible ?


Hello @bentt6,
It depends on your tier. Free tier is limited to 2 buckets.
But if you upgrade to PAYG you get:

  • Unlimited buckets to store your data
  • Unlimited storage retention

But yes that’s entirely possible and a recommended data schema esp for the following use case:
IoT application developers who are using InfluxDB as the backend and want take advantage of tokens being scoped to buckets to secure users’ data.
What’s your use case?
