Data Importer usability improvements
new
AuraDB Professional
AuraDB Free
Data Importer
This minor release of Data Importer brings a number of small but useful improvements:
  • Datatype detection
    : For properties created using
    Select from file
    , we now scan the first few rows of a file to make an educated guess on the datatype
CleanShot 2022-09-05 at 14
  • Node ID selection
    : We've tweaked the node id selection logic so that we'll now only choose a column ending
    id
    as a node id if it's the only such column in a file.
  • Problem files:
    Duplicated or empty column names in your files have the potential to cause unexpected behaviour or load errors. We now make it clear which files are affected allowing you to fix them before continuing.
CleanShot 2022-09-05 at 14
Bloom/Explore 2.4.0 available in Aura!
new
AuraDB Professional
AuraDB Free
Bloom.neo4j.io
In this release we've updated our styling, and added features to make life easier for new users:
Note that this and future releases of Bloom/Explore are no longer compatible with Neo4j Aura 3 databases, which have reached end-of-life.
  • Users will see a default search phrase included in new perspectives, "Show me a graph". This search phrase can be invoked Bloom's search bar and will make it easy to start exploring your data by showing a random subset of your graph.
  • Bloom/Explore can also now automatically synchronise perspectives by adding newly found database labels as categories. This functionality will be turned on by default, but can be turned off in the settings panel.
As always, we'd love to hear your feedback on the latest changes.
Thanks

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
