Procedure

  1. In the Repository tree view, expand the Metadata node, right-click NoSQL Connection, and select Create Connection from the contextual menu. The connection wizard opens up.
  2. In the connection wizard, fill in the general properties of the connection you need to create, such as Name, Purpose and Description.
    The information you fill in the Description field will appear as a tooltip when you move your mouse pointer over the connection.
    When done, click Next to proceed to the next step.
  3. Select Neo4j from the DB Type list, and specify the connection details:
    • Enter the authentication information to connect to the remote Neo4j server to be used. Since Neo4j 2.2, user credentials are always required.

    • Specify the root URL in the Server URL field.

  4. Click the Check button to make sure that the connection works.
  5. Click Finish to validate the settings.
    The newly created Neo4j database connection appears under the NoSQL Connection node in the Repository tree view. You can now drop it onto your design workspace as a Neo4j component, but you still need to define the schema information where needed.
    Next, you need to retrieve one or more schemas of interest for your connection.
