Improved Load Preview and new mapping support
new
AuraDB Professional
AuraDB Free
Data Importer
This latest release of Data Importer brings yet more improvements to make it easier to build your graph, read on to find out more...
Higher fidelity Load Preview
Last release we brought you the initial release of Load Preview, which allowed you to get a feel for how the structure of your graph was taking shape before performing a load. We've now made the preview logic more faithful to the load process so any problems with your mapping will now be more accurately reflected in the preview. We now also support the previewing of properties.
High fidelity Load Preview
We hope these big improvements will help you understand how your graph is taking shape quicker than ever.
Automatic mapping of common relationship IDs
When mapping properties from a file, we will now try and guess the id value by looking for a column named
id
or ending in
id
. In the event you map only one property from a file, we'll assume this is the property you want to use as the ID. You can of course override any of the automatic mappings yourself if they are not what you intended.
Automatic ID mapping
Automatic relationship from/to mapping for denormalised files
When mapping the same file to a relationship and the nodes at each end of its ends, it's usually fairly easy for us to deduce which columns should be mapped to the
from
and
to
once you've mapped the IDs to the nodes. We now do this for you automatically and again you are free to override this mapping if needed.
Automatic relationship from and to mapping
Note that this currently only works when you connect two nodes with a relationship
after
the node IDs have been set, but we plan to improve that in future.
We hope these automatic mappings speed up iterating your graph modelling and mapping.
Small bug fixes and improvements:
And finally we also made a number of small improvements as a direct result of your feedback, so please do keep the feedback coming on our feedback page:
  • Resolved an issue where integer values wouldn't load when the flat file column was padded with whitespace.
  • Resolved an issue that would cause loads to fail when a Boolean value was used as an ID
  • Scroll zoom in Load Preview now follows the mouse cursor
  • Files with larger row lengths are now supported
  • Various small UI improvements
  • Updated Cypher statement generation ready for Neo4j 5.0 release
Reset an Instance to blank - AuraDB Free & Professional
new
AuraDB Professional
AuraDB Free
We're pleased to announce that you can now reset any AuraDB Free or AuraDB Professional instance back to a blank state, without writing cypher to delete all the nodes and relationships.
Here's where you find the functionality:
Screenshot 2022-08-11 at 09
It takes about 10 seconds and leaves you with a totally empty database, to start again if PoC'ing or messing around with a dataset you loaded during create.
Watch this space as we finish the work to allow loading of datasets to both AuraDB Free and Professional after create, so you can experiment and learn without fear of messing things up.
As always, we'd love to hear your feedback on the feature.
Thanks

Maintenance release
new
Data Importer
This release of Data Importer addresses a bug that caused preview and loads not to observe a switch in relationship direction.
Query Logs - Now available to request ‘on demand’ via the Aura Console
new

  • Last 15 mins
  • Last hour
  • Custom range / calendar picker - any period of up to 1 hour, from within the last 30 days

Announcing Load Preview
new
Data Importer
This release of Data Importer brings you new capability to Preview your graph. The new
Preview
button available immediately next to
Run Import
will quickly approximate what a subset of your graph looks like. Here's a small example of the attendee graph that was presented in the keynote of our recent GraphConnect event.
CleanShot 2022-07-19 at 14
If you want to see a brief demo of the functionality, please check out our newly updated tutorial video.
To keep the Preview as performant as possible we've made some optimisations you should be aware of so you understand the subtleties of what you see:
  • It uses the first few rows of the files associated with relationships to preview up to 300 relationships in total. If the most linked parts of your graph aren't towards the top of each file, you may not see the depth of connections that materialise in the fuller load.
  • We don't currently preview the properties you have mapped. We only show the columns mapped to IDs in the relationships as node properties. So don't worry if you don't see the properties you have mapped.
  • We currently only preview relationships and their linked nodes. If you have an isolated node in your model or one that doesn't yet have a fully mapped relationship, you won't see it in the preview. But we're working to fill that gap in a future release.
We hope this new feature helps you iterate more quickly, testing out ideas before committing to a full load.
You'll also notice there have been a few styling changes and minor bug fixes trickling through to make Data Importer tidier and more pleasant.
That's all until the next release and as always, please do let us know what you think on our feedback page.

new
AuraDB Professional
We're pleased to let you know that you can now pause any AuraDB Professional instances when you are not actively using them.
Paused instances will be charged at 20% of the running cost.
We'll auto resume instances that have been paused for 30 days, to ensure we update them to the latest and greatest Neo4j database version.
At which point you'll be charged the running cost, but you can pause them again if you want.
You'll find the pause button on the main database card.

This feature facilitates cost management, you can pause database instances you only need for demos, development or that you only need running during working hours.
As always, we're keen to hear your feedback, so let us know how you get on.
