About the connector

InfluxDB is an open-source time series database developed by InfluxData. It is written in Go and optimized for fast, high-availability storage and retrieval of time series data in fields such as operations monitoring, application metrics, Internet of Things sensor data, and real-time analytics. It also has support for processing data from Graphite.

This document provides information about the InfluxDB connector, which facilitates automated interactions with InfluxDB using FortiSOAR™ playbooks. Add the InfluxDB connector as a step in FortiSOAR™ playbooks and perform automated operations, such running a database query on InfluxDB.
