Interactive Widgets in InfluxDB web ui?

Is there a possibility to use (inter-)active widgets in the InfluxDB web UI?

Background: I would like to trigger actions in my IoT devices and observe the reactions without leaving the InfluxDB UI.

So for example:

  • A “Button” widget that sends an MQTT message on an “onClick” event.
  • A “Slider” widget that sends its value to an http endpoint on an “onChange” event.

Hello @Franky1,
That’s a good idea. I don’t think that’s a feature at the moment though.
The closest thing we have is tasks and flux.
You could use: Flux MQTT package | InfluxDB OSS 2.0 Documentation
Store the Flux script in a task and use the “run task” button in the UI to run the task on click.


Can you please create a feature request in:
