Importing multiple JSON files ( json bulk import)

Hello Everyone,

I'm modeling datasets for our network infrastructure, I have modeled much of the infrastructure. I got stuck in the bulk import of JSON interface files.
I tried the import tool using regex, it returned an error.

</> <bash-3.2$ ./neo4j-admin import --nodes:Interface="../import/device-interfaces_*" --ignore-missing-nodes </> Expected '--nodes' to have at least 1 valid item, but had 0

It appears that the import tool is only for csv files, so maybe a conversion is required.

The JSON file names look likes this:
device-interfaces-[0-9a-z]-[0-9a-z]-[0-9a-z]-[0-9a-z].json
{
"response": [
{
"status": "up",
"adminStatus": "UP",
"macAddress": "",
"ipv4Address": null,
"voiceVlan": null,
"description": " some desc",
"className": "SwitchPort",
"interfaceType": "Physical",
"speed": "100000",
"portMode": "access",
"portType": "Ethernet Port",
"duplex": "FullDuplex",
"vlanId": "",
"portName": "GigabitEthernet0/1",
"id": ""
}
the datasets looks something like this.
Any advice on the best way to bulk import JSONs, knowing they will have the same label 'Interface'.

Sofiane,

Thank you,

How many nodes/relationships are you trying to create from those JSON files?

A possible option is to use the Load JSON procedure from APOC, the Neo4j standard library. You can learn about that here - https://neo4j.com/docs/labs/apoc/3.5/import/load-json/

That is executed while the database is running though, which is different than what the neo4j-admin import tool does.

If you want to use neo4j-admin import, perhaps you could use the jq (https://stedolan.github.io/jq/) tool to convert your JSON files into CSV format?
