Install a Neo4j standalone instance
Getting everything to work in Kubernetes requires that certain K8s objects have specific names that are referenced elsewhere.
Each individual Neo4j instance is a Helm “release” and has a release name.
All other names and labels of K8s objects created by the Helm charts derive from both
neo4j.name and release name.
Release name must consist of lowercase alphanumeric characters,
., and must start and end with an alphanumeric character.
This guide assumes the release name is
Install Neo4j using the deployment values.yaml file, created in Create a value.yaml file, and the neo4j/neo4j Helm chart:
neo4jnamespace and configure it to be used in the current context:
kubectl create namespace neo4j kubectl config set-context --current --namespace=neo4j
Install the Neo4j standalone server:
helm install my-neo4j-release neo4j/neo4j --namespace neo4j -f my-neo4j.values.yamlExample output
LAST DEPLOYED: Wed Oct 26 15:19:17 2022 NAMESPACE: neo4j STATUS: deployed REVISION: 1 TEST SUITE: None NOTES: Thank you for installing neo4j. Your release "my-neo4j-release" has been installed in namespace "neo4j". The neo4j user's password has been set to "my-password".To view the progress of the rollout try: $ kubectl --namespace "neo4j" rollout status --watch --timeout=600s statefulset/my-neo4j-release Once rollout is complete you can log in to Neo4j at "neo4j://my-neo4j-release.neo4j.svc.cluster.local:7687". Try: $ kubectl run --rm -it --namespace "neo4j" --image "neo4j:5.1.0" cypher-shell \ -- cypher-shell -a "neo4j://my-neo4j-release.neo4j.svc.cluster.local:7687" -u neo4j -p "my-password" Graphs are everywhere!

kubectl rollout status --watch --timeout=600s statefulset/my-neo4j-release
Since you have not passed a password for the
neo4juser, the Neo4j Helm chart has set an automatically generated one. You can find it in the Helm install output. Please make a note of it.
