Writing a Pandas Dataframe into InfluxDB Cloud

Hey everyone,

My team recently set up a trial w/ InfluxDB 2.0 in order to test them out for use as a Time series database for our work. I have been trying to write a dataframe into Our InfluxDB cloud bucket similar to the solution provided here. and although we don’t get any errors and connect correctly (The only difference being the URL we use is an influxDB cloud url and not a local server, none of our data writes in. We tried various dataframes down to the simplest possible and it didn’t work.

Is this not possible to do to the cloud? The documentation I find suggests writing Data Points, InfluxDB line protocol, or batch writes in the line protocool format is the only way to do so.

Many thanks in advance if anyone could shed a light on this!

Hi @Maz,

could you share a debug output from client?

You could enable debug mode by: InfluxDBClient(url="http://localhost:9999", token="my-token", org="my-org", debug=True)


Code snippets posted in the forum, do not necessarily have to be error-free :wink:
I think there is a typo - also in the official documentation.
Should be: record=_data_frame

sure, that is possible

Hi Bednar.

As far as I can tell, there aren’t any issues?

Here you go:
send: b’POST /api/v2/write?org=(REDACTED)&bucket=(REDACTED)&precision=ns HTTP/1.1\r\nHost: us-east-1-1.aws.cloud2.influxdata.com\r\nAccept-Encoding: identity\r\nContent-Length: 56\r\nContent-Encoding: identity\r\nContent-Type: text/plain\r\nAccept: application/json\r\nAuthorization: Token (REDACTED) \r\nUser-Agent: influxdb-client-python/1.14.0\r\n\r\n’
send: b’Speed,DateTime=2021-02-18\ 12:56:44.859396 Speed=“0.0” 0’
reply: ‘HTTP/1.1 204 No Content\r\n’
header: Date: Thu, 18 Feb 2021 17:56:51 GMT

header: trace-id: 13e222fb08ce8d55
header: trace-sampled: false
header: Strict-Transport-Security: max-age=15724800; includeSubDomains

I removed the Token, Bucket name, and username for this output


If you look at debug output you could see that following LineProtocol was written into InfluxDB: Speed,DateTime=2021-02-18\ 12:56:44.859396 Speed=“0.0” 0.

Could you share how your code and DataFrame looks like?

Here is an example how to ingest DataFrame:

Write Pandas DataFrame
_now = pd.Timestamp().now('UTC')
_data_frame = pd.DataFrame(data=[["coyote_creek", 1.0], ["coyote_creek", 2.0]],
                           index=[now, now + timedelta(hours=1)],
                           columns=["location", "water_level"])

write_api.write("my-bucket", record=data_frame, data_frame_measurement_name='h2o_feet',

The written line protocol does not look like a valid line protocol to me.


  • DateTime seems to be a “tag” - should be either a “field” or the timestamp?
  • Timestamp is 0

Yes that would be helpful


Are there any further conclusions or solutions? I have the same problem using influxdb-client 1.16.

writing a dataframe to an OSS 1.8 influxDB works just fine. But writing to influxDB cloud 2.0 does not seem to work.

Below the head of the dataframe:

Thank you in advance for taking a look at this.
