In the navigation menu on the left, select the Account dropdown. Select Create Organization. In the window that appears accordingly, enter an Organization Name and Bucket Name and select Create.
- Navigate to Data - Buckets
- Create a new Bucket to define where you want to store the data forwarded from akenza
- Navigate to Data - API Tokens
- Create a new API Token with Write access to the Bucket you want to store the data
Create a new Data Flow in akenza with Influx DB as Output Connector. Define a Connector Name, insert the InfluxDB URL under which your InfluxDB can be reached. Put the Organization Id of the organization created in step one in the InfluxDB Org field. Chose the Bucket name created in step one into the InfluxDB Bucket field. Copy the API Token created in step one into the InfluxDB API Token field.
In order to check if uplinks arrive in your InfluxDB bucket, navigate to Explore and create a query by selecting the Bucket created in step one, a measurement name and clicking submit. The data should now be shown. This query can be refined by selecting more filters.
Once a device is connected to the InfluxDB, device data can be further used on various services in InfluxDB.
