Release Announcement: InfluxDB OSS 2.0.8

Navigate to:

A new maintenance release for InfluxDB OSS is available now. Thank you to all the community members who have downloaded and used this latest release.

Upcoming changes to CLI packaging

Beginning with the next minor version (2.1.0), the InfluxDB CLI (influx command) will no longer be packaged in releases from the InfluxDB repository (influxdata/influxdb). Future versions of the InfluxDB CLI will instead be released from the influx-cli repository. Users who wish to adopt the new InfluxDB CLI today can download the latest release from the InfluxData Downloads Portal.

Breaking change for Mac OS Users

  • This release upgrades the project to go version 1.16. Because of the version bump to go, the macOS build for this release requires at least version 10.12 Sierra to run.


  • Disable the Browser UI - Added --ui-disabled option to influxd to allow for running with the UI disabled.

Fixes and improvements

This maintenance release of InfluxDB OSS includes the following fixes and improvements:

  • Upgraded to latest version of influxdata/cron so that tasks can be created with interval of every: 1w.
  • We now return an error instead of panicking when InfluxQL statement rewrites fail.
  • Added migration for restored KV snapshots to latest schema before using them.
  • We now specify which fields are missing when rejecting an incomplete onboarding request.
  • systemd unit should block on startup until http endpoint is ready
  • Fixed display and parsing of influxd upgrade CLI prompts in Windows PowerShell.
  • Prevented silently dropped writes when there are overlapping shards.
  • Invalid requests to /api/v2 subroutes now return 404 instead of a list of links.
  • Flux metaqueries for _field take fast path if _measurement is the only predicate.
  • Copy names from mmapped memory before closing iterator.
  • Flux has been upgraded to v0.124.0.
