We’re using Influx 1.2.2 (haven’t been able to go to 1.3 due to some compatibility issues with other apps).
I need to drop some measurements using the http API. One measurement, for instance, is “Cal_Eye.Device.S1.Press”
If I do this like:
"http://host:8086/write?u=username&p=password&db=mydb&q=DROP MEASUREMENT “Cal_Eye.Device.S1.Press”
It gives an error about a post request but still says it dropped the measurement.
But then when I use show measurements to see the measurement it’s still listed. And when I try to query from it, there are no data points.
What am I doing wrong? And is there a correct way to use POST to do this? I can’t find anything in the help.
