I am trying to use v1 compatibility mode against an influx cloud instance and I get a 501 for /query. I have followed all instructions listed here InfluxDB 1.x compatibility API | InfluxDB Cloud Documentation to query with a token. I know that my token is correct as I can use it against other endpoints. Additionally if I change my token I get a 401. This implies I have a correct token getting passed the auth, but then I get a 501 from query endpoint.
Just ran into this post here since I’m facing the same issue. A little more context:
I had to migrate to Cloud instance eu-central-1-1.aws.cloud2. Now the new cloud and database architecture does not seem to support InfluxQL in Grafana any longer. In my previous cloud instance I was able to run Grafana with InfluxQL by running through the docs around DRBP mapping and token based authentication in Grafana. Same thing now gives me error 501. Like mentioned by connr, changing the token shows error 401…
Two reasons for me to stay with InfluxQL are:
I have a quite large on-prem Raspberry Setup of Influx&Grafana, my cloud instance is supposed to give me a lightweight solution accessible from everywhere, 30 days data retention is fine for that. So I don’t want to re-create all dashboards in another query language. I used to copy/paste the json statements from one instance to the other for all panels with just minor adjustments on the datapoint names,…
I was unable to install the FlightSQL plugin in my Grafana cloud instance, telling me that my Grafana (cloud) version isn’t compatible with the plugin (or vice versa).
Please check if there’s a possibility to implement InfluxQL for the new instances. Or if not, does that mean InfluxQL is a dead end now?
