Create a Neo4j® database connection using the URL http://localhost:7474/db/data, user name neo4j, and password matlab.

url = 'http://localhost:7474/db/data';
username = 'neo4j';
password = 'matlab';

neo4jconn = neo4j(url,username,password);

Check the Message property of the Neo4j® connection object neo4jconn.

ans =


The blank Message property indicates a successful connection.

Search the database for the node with node identifier 2 using the Neo4j® database connection neo4jconn.

nodeid = 2;

node = searchNodeByID(neo4jconn,nodeid);

Search for all incoming relationships for the node.

nodereltypes = nodeRelationTypes(node,'in')
nodereltypes =



nodereltypes returns a list of the relationship types.

Input Arguments

Neo4j database node, specified as a Neo4jNode object created using searchNode or searchNodeByID.

Relationship direction, specified as one of these values. The relationships are associated with the specified origin node.



Incoming relationship


Outgoing relationship

Output Arguments
