NAME

REST::Neo4p::Schema - Label-based indexes and constraints

SYNOPSIS

 REST::Neo4p->connect($server);
 $schema = REST::Neo4p::Schema->new;
 $schema->create_index('Person','name');
 

DESCRIPTION

Neo4j v2.0+ provides a way to schematize the graph on the basis of node labels, associated indexes, and property uniqueness constraints. REST::Neo4p::Schema allows access to this system via the Neo4j REST API. Use a Schema object to create, list, and drop indexes and constraints.

METHODS

create_index()
 $schema->create_index('Label', 'property');
 $schema->create_index('Label', @properties);

The second example is convenience for creating multiple single indexes on each of a list of properties. It does not create a compound index on the set of properties. Returns TRUE.

get_indexes()
 @properties = $schema->get_indexes('Label');

Get a list properties on which an index exists for a given label.

drop_index()
 $schema->drop_index('Label','property');
 $schema->drop_index('Label', @properties);

Remove indexes on given property or properties for a given label.

create_unique_constraint()
 $schema->create_unique_constraint('Label', 'property');
 $schema->create_unique_constraint('Label', @properties);

Create uniqueness constraints on a given property or properties for a given label.

Note: For some inexplicable reason, this one schema feature went behind the paywall in Neo4j version 4.0. Unless you are using the Enterprise Edition, this method will throw the dreaded REST::Neo4p::Neo4jTightwadException.

get_constraints()
 @properties = $schema->get_constraints('Label');

Get a list of properties for which (uniqueness) constraints exist for a given label.

drop_unique_constraint()
 $schema->drop_unique_constraint('Label', 'property');
 $schema->drop_unique_constraint('Label', @properties);

Remove uniqueness constraints on given property or properties for a given label.
