Cannot install APOC on neo4j 4.0.4 running on docker

Hi team !
newbie here having some hard time trying to install APOC on neo4J running on docker container. :innocent:

My setup:
Windows 10 version 1909
Neo4J 4.0.4 community edition
Docker desktop 2.3.0.3 (45519 stable) community edition

My goal: install APOC plugin in neo4j db running in container.

The problem: when i start my container i get the following error (parse error:Invalid numeric literal at line 1, column 6)

parse error: Invalid numeric literal at line 1, column 6

The container is up and running, Neo4J database is working (i can access it throuhg neo4 browser) however, APOC plugin is not installed : :grimacing: :grimacing: :grimacing:

call apoc.help("asdas")

#### Neo.ClientError.Procedure.ProcedureNotFound

There is no procedure with the name `apoc.help` registered for this database instance. Please ensure you've spelled the procedure name correctly and that the procedure is properly deployed.

I'm pretty sure the problem is related to the way I am setting up the environment variables :roll_eyes: :roll_eyes:.

I have tried the following:

docker run --name test --publish=7474:7474 --publish=7687:7687  --env='NEO4JLABS_PLUGINS=["apoc"]' --env=NEO4J_AUTH=none neo4j:latest
 docker run --name test --publish=7474:7474 --publish=7687:7687  --env 'NEO4JLABS_PLUGINS=["apoc"]' --env=NEO4J_AUTH=none neo4j:latest
 docker run --name test --publish=7474:7474 --publish=7687:7687  --env=NEO4JLABS_PLUGINS=["apoc"] --env=NEO4J_AUTH=none neo4j:latest

Can you guys point me the right direction ?

Best regards

You're very close. The NEO4JLABS_PLUGIN env should be --env=NEO4JLABS_PLUGINS='["apoc"]'
bash doesn't like the square brackets.

well after a few tries I've managed to run my neo4j container with APOC !! :partying_face: :partying_face: :partying_face:

I enclosed the NEO4JLABS_PLUGIN in single quote and escaped the double quote

'NEO4JLABS_PLUGINS=[\"apoc\"]'  --env=NEO4J_AUTH=none neo4j:latest

The result (log from my container)
