How to enable Apoc trigger add on Aura?
According to https://neo4j-aura.canny.io/feature-requests/p/enable-triggers, we have now the possibility to use call apoc trigger add in Aura, however I get a message asking to enable it in apoc.conf. How can I do it?
Merged in a post:
enable apoc NLP libraries
I could really use apoc's nlp libraries in my apoc instance. Would unlock some really fantastic things for me.
Markus Wissing hello there,
We have no plans in 2022 to enable apoc.custom in AuraDB Free or Professional.
The apoc.custom procedure is very useful and powerful, and in a self hosted and self controlled environment, you and others may want to carry out actions acceptable to your risk position, that aren't appropriate to take at scale in a publicly accessible platform.
We will continue to review the inclusion of such functionality in a way that does match our risk and security position as a publically accessible platform and will keep you updated.
John Kennedy: Hi John, thanks for the explanation. I see, it is about risk management. On the other hand, I am using just cypher and some basic apoc functions in my procedures, nothing else. I had the assumption, that for the same query the "place of deployment" makes no difference for the Neo4j DB engine from a performance perspective. I can deploy the exact same query in a lambda function and run it against the same Aura DB. As we have many different clients connecting to the DB, a central deployment via apoc.custom.asProcedure is much more elegant. Seems that my assumption was wrong, because for your operations teams it makes a difference. Best Markus
These Triggers are not currently enabled, and we are looking to correct the listing of them being available in Aura in short order.
Thanks Mohamed Ghaiti I'll take a look into this and update/correct my understanding and get back to you.
