Usage Examples

The examples in this section are based on the following graph:

CREATE (s:Student {name: 'Xavier', score: 82});
CREATE (s:Student {name: 'Jackson', score: 81});
CREATE (s:Student {name: 'Sophia', score: 74});
CREATE (s:Student {name: 'Ariana', score: 70});
CREATE (s:Student {name: 'Elena', score: 92});
CREATE (s:Student {name: 'Luca', score: 85});

The apoc.create.vNodes is a procedure that takes a list or group of data and calls the procedure once for the entire batch.

We can use the same example from the apoc.create.vNode, but collect the scores into a single list for the procedure to create a node for each in a single call:

apoc.create.vNode Procedure
MATCH (s:Student)
WITH collect(s {.score}) as scores
CALL apoc.create.vNodes(['Score'],scores) YIELD node
RETURN node;
Table 1. Results

{"score":82}

{"score":81}

{"score":74}

{"score":70}

{"score":92}

{"score":85}
