Possible to delete an item inside a measurement?


Apologies I am not making much sense but I am fairly new to Influx. I have a database called “telegraf” and inside I have a measurement called “apc”. Inside “apc” I have an item called “apctimeremaining”. Is it possible to delete this item? Unfortunately I do not know the appropriate term for “apctimeremaining” inside this measurement.

Here it is inside Grafana:


Again, I apologize in advance if I am not making much sense.


I think by item you mean field. Influx doesn’t support dropping individual fields. Best you can do is to SELECT ... INTO a new measurement without the field, or delete all the series that contain the field.

See https://github.com/influxdata/influxdb/issues/6150

Yes, that’s what I meant. I will just delete the series in this case.

Thank you.
