Type mismatch already exists

Getting error:
2020-04-23 17:15:53 +0000 [warn]: #0 failed to flush the buffer. retry_time=1 next_retry_seconds=2020-04-23 17:15:54 +0000 chunk=“5a3f5c63ad702c5378d8ecff53ceea2a” error_class=InfluxDB::Error error="{“error”:“partial write: field type conflict: input field [\“pipeline_id\](file:///%22pipeline_id/)” on measurement [\“xxxx\](file:///%xxxxx/)” is type integer, already exists as type string dropped=2819”}\n"

Basically looks like input field must already exist as string and trying to import an int.

How to work around this behavior?

Hello @acollins74,
Welcome! Please take a look at this documentation. The simplest workaround is to begin writing the new data type to a different field in the same series.
