When I run the “applying the raspberry pi template” command at the bottom of page 237, I get this error:
influx apply -f https://raw.githubusercontent.com/influxdata/communitytemplates/master/raspberry-pi/raspberry-pi-system.yml
2023/05/27 08:07:27 WARN: Passing URLs via -f/–file is deprecated, please use -u/–template-url instead
Error: failed to read template(s) from “https://raw.githubusercontent.com/influxdata/communitytemplates/master/raspberry-pi/raspberry-pi-system.yml”: bad response: address=https://raw.githubusercontent.com/influxdata/communitytemplates/master/raspberry-pi/raspberry-pi-system.yml status_code=404 body=”404: Not Found”
I think maybe your command was broken during copy paste.
Try to copy it from here:
influx apply -u https://raw.githubusercontent.com/influxdata/community-templates/master/raspberry-pi/raspberry-pi-system.yml
Does it work now?
I ran into this problem too and used your fix successfully. However…I’m now getting the following error: “influx apply -u https://raw.githubusercontent.com/influxdata/community-templates/master/raspberry-pi/raspberry-pi-system.yml
Error: must specify org ID or org name
I can’t seem to find any info to point me in the right direction to solve this issue. I’m assuming I’ve made a mistake somewhere in the setup but so far had no luck.
Are you able to provide some advice?
I think it is because you probably didn’t run the previous command on page 239.
Double-check the commands on the “Provide required authentication credentials”.
Hi Sara, sorry for taking a while to get back to you.
Thanks for the advice. Even though I was sure I did it correctly I wen’t over it again and got the same result.
Tried to resolve it by trying different things including perusing the Influx website and using some of their info but alway getting back to the same problem. In the end I decided for now to park the issue and go past it as it’s not affecting the data collection and display on InfluxDB. I’ve successfully managed to get to the point (P257) and about to create a dashboard.
So I’m happy to close this one. If in the future an issue crops up in relation to this I’ll revisit it again, but for now I’ve sent too many hours spinning wheels.
Thanks for your efforts.
So, I’ll close this issue for now.
Let me know if you need further help in the future.
