Usage Examples

This procedure is useful for executing multiple Cypher statements. We can create a node in one statement and create a relationship to itself in another statement, by running the following query:

CALL apoc.cypher.runMany(
  'CREATE (n:Node {name:$name});
   MATCH (n {name:$name})
   CREATE (n)-[:X {name:$name2}]->(n);',
  {name:"John", name2:"Doe"}
);

If we don’t want to see statistics for each Cypher statement, we can set statistics: false:

CALL apoc.cypher.runMany(
  'CREATE (n:Node {name:$name});
   MATCH (n {name:$name})
   CREATE (n)-[:X {name:$name2}]->(n);',
  {name:"John", name2:"Doe"},
  {statistics: false}
);
