Cant set retention: Never


When i create new bucket i can set retention for “Never”, but if i change it e.g. to 1y, then i can’t set it back for never - why or how fix it ?

I have the same problem, any suggestions/solutions?


@lakusz1influx @Chriz you can update the retention to “infinite” using the influx CLI:

influx bucket update -i <your-bucket-id> --retention 0

Thy so much, that did it :slight_smile:

I had the same issue but the command line command fixed it. Is there some reason though why the UI cannot do it? This is a rather obvious bug.
