The NAIS platform offers Influxdb via Aiven.

Get your own

As there are very teams that need an Influxdb instance we use a IaC-repo to provision each instance. Head over to aiven-iac to learn how to get your own instance.

Username and password

For now we are manually distributing the username and password for each instance. There is only one user for Influxdb.

Default database name

The default database name is defaultdb.

Datasource in

Let us know in #pig-aiven if you want your Influxdb to be exposed at This means that everyone has access to your data.

Access from Nais-app

If you need access from an application, you need to reuse the access given for Elastic Search instances. See nais.yaml-reference.

Access from laptop

With Naisdevice you have access to the aiven-prod gateway. This is a JITA (just in time access) gateway, so you need to describe why, but the access is automatically given.


We do not offer support on Influxdb as software, but questions about Aiven and provisioning can be directed to #pig_aiven on Slack.
