Neo4j-3.5 indexing improvement


(Amad Fida) #1

We noticed that there is a lot of work being done on improving indexing on current branch - Ww were wondering if there is any docs available on new native (gbtree) index and test some of issues with large string value (we have currently with native+lucene)?

Hi there, there is documentation on the behavior and limitations of the native string index here.

If your needs are such that you need to revert to the lucene string index, you can drop the current index and use a special procedure to force creation of the index using the older index provider:

CALL db.createIndex(":Person(name)", "lucene+native-1.0"))
