Using Python clients 1.x for InfluxDB 2.7?

Hi there,

I’m operating some self hosted instances of InfluxDB 2.7 (community edition). As Flux seems to be no more available in version 3, we wanted to analyse the ingested data now with the classical InfluxQL. On the CLI, this works fine with the “/query” endpoint, but it doesn’t seems so that the Python clients can work with this endpoint?

Or, is there any other common solutuon how to analyse InfluxDB 2.x contents via InfluxQL from python scripts?

Hello @TomZastrow,
Yes you can use the newest python client to query 3.x

Youre right the /write endpoints are the same in both but the query are different because 3.x uses arrow under the hood.
