Drop series by tag not working

Hi all,

I’m trying to drop all series that has a particular tag value associated with it. I’m doing this like this:

drop series where “team” = ‘my_team’

I then run:

show series where “team” = ‘my_team’

and nothing is returned. But then, when I query a measurement with the team tag like this:

show tag values from influxdb with key = team

the tag value shows up in the list. Am I missing anything?

This is influxdb 1.6.2 if that makes a difference.
