Available states


Installs InfluxDB from [provided packages](

At the moment you have to specify the InfluxDB version in the influxdb:version pillar.


Installs the [influxdb-cli]( gem system wide.


Renders the InfluxDB configuration from data provided in the influxdb:conf pillar.

It requires the installation of the [toml Python module]( via pip.

The formula ships with default configuration settings for various minor versions of InfluxDB. That means that, if you define configuration settings in your influxdb.conf pillar, your settings will be merged with the default ones of that minor version. You can set influxdb:no_conf_defaults in your pillar if you want to completely specify the configuration yourself, without falling back to defaults.


Linux testing is done with kitchen-salt.


  • Ruby
  • Docker
$ gem install bundler
$ bundle install
$ bin/kitchen test [platform]

Where [platform] is the platform name defined in kitchen.yml, e.g. debian-9-2019-2-py3.

bin/kitchen converge

Creates the docker instance and runs the influxdb main state, ready for testing.

bin/kitchen verify

Runs the inspec tests on the actual instance.

bin/kitchen destroy

Removes the docker instance.

bin/kitchen test

Runs all of the stages above in one go: i.e. destroy + converge + verify + destroy.

bin/kitchen login

Gives you SSH access to the instance for manual testing.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
