We have customers using InfluxDB as a local on-prem storage mechanism. What’s the best extractor to use to push this data to CDF? I’ve heard OPC-UA is the way to do it, but what I find online are ways to store OPC-UA data into Influx, but not ways to get InfluxDB data into a OPC-UA server so I could use the OPC-UA extractor to get it into CDF.

Hi @Peter Quinn,

Your observation is accurate; you can input data into InfluxDB through OPC-UA, and utilizing their API for data extraction is advisable. At this stage, you should build your own custom extractor (there is a Python library that you can leverage to speed up your development).

It's essential to be aware that the schema in InfluxDB 1.x differs significantly from that in version 2.x or later. Knowing the specific version is crucial information for developing your extractor.
