Last week, Anabranch released version 1.1 of the tools for Neo4j – which included a very welcome addition to the toolset – being able to pull data from a Neo4j instance.
After doing the demo post – I noticed a peculiarity – a quirk if you will with how the ‘Execute Cypher Task’ (see here) worked with multiple Neo4j Connection Managers defined – it would execute the Cypher against all the Connection Managers, not any specific one. This makes sense in some form – as a Control Flow Task doesn’t have a ‘Connection’ selector unlike a Data Flow Task.
Version 1.2 of the tools fixes this and tidies up the Execute Cypher Task to have a better user interface as well.
The Cypher box still has highlighting, but now lines up to the edges properly.
Choosing A Connection
You can choose from a drop down which connection you want to use. You will only see Neo4j Connection Managers here. The name of the Connection Manager will be the one you set it to.
You will get a red cross on your task if you’re missing things (in this case the connection). If you look in the ‘Error List’ you will be able to see all the errors:
