Creating an AuraDS instance

  1. Navigate to the Neo4j Aura Console.

  2. Select Create an instance to open the Create an instance page.

  3. Set the Instance details:

    • Instance Name - The name to give to the instance. A descriptive name makes it easier to find a specific instance among many.

    • Number of nodes/relationships - The estimated number of nodes and relationships that the instance should support.

  4. Select one or more algorithm categories from the Which algorithms are you going to use? section (or the I’m not sure yet option) to help estimate the most appropriate instance size. An overview of each algorithm category can be found here.

  5. Select Calculate Estimate to get an estimate of the resources needed to run the graph (memory, CPU, storage) along with the expected price.

  6. Select Create Instance to proceed.

  7. Copy and store the Username and Generated password credentials to access the instance just created. Alternatively, you can download the credentials as a .env file.

    Warning: Make sure that the username and password are stored safely before continuing. Credentials cannot be recovered afterwards.
  8. Tick the I have stored these credentials safely to use later checkbox and select Continue.

Multi-database is not supported within Neo4j AuraDS.

The process will take a few minutes to complete. Upon completion, you will be able to connect to the instance.
