Data Importer connection to a specific Database in Enterprise instance

gq16
Node Clone

I want to use data importer to import some data into an Enterprise Neo4j+s instance that contains many databases. The data importer sends the data to the home/default database called "neo4j" every time, and I want it to be sent to a different database though. How can I do this?

Thanks,

GQ

Hey, sorry for missing this.

There's a post over on our canny board that could help you out with a workaround while we build out multi-database support. Reposting here:

In the meantime there is a workaround you may want to consider. Data Importer uses the HOME database for the connected user and you have the facility to change your user's home database. Alternatively you can create new users with different default home database that can be used as a means to import into specific databases via username. For more info on setting home databases, see the docs here.

Thanks,

Greg

Hi,

Thank you for posting this question, I have the same issue, did you find a solution to connect to a specific database with data importer ?

Thanks

@amina Unfortunately, I haven't yet. I really hope there is something way to do this in Neo4j DI😭
@gregory_king Are you able to provide some insight on this question?
