No Data from influxDB query


I’m quite new to influxdb and I’m trying to get data from Postman without much of success although from influxdb I get data.

In InfluxDB the query I’m executing is:

from(bucket: "ttn_data")
  |> range(start: -30d)
  |> filter(fn: (r) => r["_measurement"] == "mqtt_consumer")
  |> filter(fn: (r) => r["_field"] == "BME680_breath_voc_eq")

while from Postman I have the url: http://localhost::8086/api/v2/query/analyze?orgID=myorg and in headers I have:

Accept: application/json
Content-Type: application/json
Body: raw


"query": "from(bucket: \"ttn_data\") \n |> range(start: -30d) \n |> filter(fn: (r) => r[\"_measurement\"] == \"mqtt_consumer\") \n |> filter(fn: (r) => r[\"_field\"] == \"BME680_breath_voc_eq\")",

"type": "flux"


The result of the query is 200 OK:

    "errors": []

In the logs of influxdb I receive:

influxdb_1  | ts=2022-04-05T22:21:31.957352Z lvl=debug msg="user find by ID" log_id=0_fwX6iW000 store=new took=0.046ms

Am I missing something?


This might be helpful:

Here’s what my cURL request from postman looks like:

curl --location --request POST '<myorgID>' \
--header 'Accept: application/json' \
--header 'Authorization: Token <mytoken>' \
--header 'Content-Type: application/json' \
--data-raw '{
"query": "from(bucket: \"Jetson\")\n  |> range(start: 1h)\n  |> filter(fn: (r) => r[\"_measurement\"] == v.measurments)\n  |> filter(fn: (r) => r[\"_field\"] == \"jetson_Temp AO\" or r[\"_field\"] == \"jetson_Temp CPU\" or r[\"_field\"] == \"jetson_Temp GPU\" or r[\"_field\"] == \"jetson_Temp PLL\" or r[\"_field\"] == \"jetson_Temp thermal\")\n  |> aggregateWindow(every: v.windowPeriod, fn: last, createEmpty: false)\n  |> yield(name: \"last\")"

@Symeon_Mattes what you have looks good. Maybe try not specifying the query type in the body?

Without the type I receive:

    "code": "internal error",
    "message": "An internal error has occurred - check server logs"

I find it weird, because in PostQuery it mentions that query is required while type is not. However it seems as if “query” key is not required because if I use this as body:

"type": "flux"

I receive again 200 OK:

    "errors": []

Thanks for the tutorial…I already know it and I’m using it as it recommends. I have tried it with curl and I receive the same results.

I found the issue. Actually the Postman Collection has a misguided configuration. To retrieve data you need:


Then one I was using was


which is for analyzing the query
