Full Text Index

What makes creating a full-text schema index different from creating a property index?


Node Clone

Hi @writapransengupta ,
As per said in the documentation

A full-text schema index:

  • be applied to more than one label (while single property index applies to only one property).
  • be applied to more than one relationship type (both nodes and relationships).
  • will index entities that have at least one of the indexed labels or relationship types, and at least one of the indexed properties (instead of matching exactly the content or the beginning as per the property index)

Hope this helps


Please have a look at indexing mechanisms in neo4j. Also please review your Data model.Mark/Chart them on whiteboard and then decide what labels/properties do you want to index.

Thanking you
