Chapter 36. Legacy Indexing

[Note]Note

This is not the same as indexes defined in the schema, the documentation below is for the legacy indexing in Neo4j.

This chapter focuses on how to use the Manual Indexes and Autoindexes. As of Neo4j 2.0, this is not the favored method of indexing data in Neo4j, instead we recommend defining indexes in the database schema.

However, support for legacy indexes remains, because certain features, such as uniqueness constraints, are not yet handled by the new indexes.
