Import file location for Neo4j on Google Cloud Engine


(Maria) #1

I have a Neo4j enterprise cluster set up on GCE, and have been using Neo4j desktop with a connected database to build out my graph. Can someone help point me in the right direction on where Neo4j looks for import files (e.g.: CSV) in this situation? The Neo4j desktop guide instructions are not applicable for a database that's not local.

All installations look in the locations outlined in your .conf file. You'll also may need to enable this for APOC if you're using that method. e.g.

dbms.directories.import=var/neo4j/import

You'll need to indicate the absolute path to your import directory if it's outside of environment or current path.

@Jiropole has the right answer. Also please remember to edit on neo4j cloud instances the /etc/neo4j/neo4j.template file if you need to change config, rather than the conf file directly. Full descriptions of those VMs can be found here
