Neo4j Server

On a standalone Neo4j Server, GDS will need to be installed and configured manually.

  1. Download neo4j-graph-data-science-[version].zip from the Neo4j Download Center

  2. Unzip the archive and move the neo4j-graph-data-science-[version].jar file into the $NEO4J_HOME/plugins directory.

  3. Add the following to your $NEO4J_HOME/conf/neo4j.conf file:*

    This configuration entry is necessary because the GDS library accesses low-level components of Neo4j to maximise performance.

  4. Check if the procedure allowlist is enabled in the $NEO4J_HOME/conf/neo4j.conf file and add the GDS library if necessary:*
  5. Restart Neo4j

1. Verifying installation

To verify your installation, print the version of Graph Data Science by opening Neo4j Browser and running the gds.version() function:

RETURN gds.version();

To list all available procedures, run the gds.list() procedure:

CALL gds.list();
