npm version npm downloads code license npm publish

Getting Started

  1. Install newman
  2. Install newman-reporter-influxdb
  3. Install InfluxDB (Get the server address, port, database name, etc)


  1. node and npm
  2. newman - npm install -g newman
  3. InfluxDB


npm install -g newman-reporter-influxdb

Installation should be done globally if newman is installed globally, otherwise install without -g option


Specify -r influxdb option while running the collection

newman run <collection-url> -r influxdb \
  --reporter-influxdb-server <server-ip> \
  --reporter-influxdb-port <server-port> \
  --reporter-influxdb-name <database-name> \
  --reporter-influxdb-measurement <measurement-name>
  • By default, reporter consider influxdb version 1.x (i.e 1.7, 1.8)
  • In case of InfluxDB version 2, specify version, org and bucket name as well
    • --reporter-influxdb-version 2
    • --reporter-influxdb-org <org-name>
    • --reporter-influxdb-name <bucket-name>


# For InfluxDB version 1.x

--reporter-influxdb-server localhost \
--reporter-influxdb-port 8086 \
--reporter-influxdb-name newman_reports \
--reporter-influxdb-measurement api_results

# For InfluxDB version 2.x

To write, just send newline separated line protocol over UDP.  Can send one point at a time (not very performant) or send batches.
