InfluxDB2 OSS - importing data causes error type incompatibility error, even though querying the data shows that the type matches

Hey everyone! I’m having trouble with importing data. The error is “field type conflict” - I’m injecting float but the stored value is string. But when I query the database for all the data, it returns all float. I’m using the python client.

I’m also using the included GUI to inspect the types and also the client to inspect the full data set.

Hello @pan_pe,
Yes you must only insert one type/per field. So if you’ve injected string values previously, the new values must also be strings. Or you must write a new field (field key) with float values.
