We are excited to announce the
General Availability (GA)of the Aura API for all customers with billing applied on the Aura console, and customers with integrations to our AWS and GCP cloud marketplaces.
Aura API has been tested with Enterprise customers since late 2022, and now has additional capabilities to manage all instances (including Free).
Combined with our Labs CLI project which allows access via the command line, the Aura API enables developers to integrate Aura databases into their DevOps pipelines and test changes throughout the stack.
The API allows requests at the Instance and Tenant level. Customers can: Create, Destroy, View, Edit, Pause, Resume, Snapshot, and Restore instances. At the tenant level customers can return the list of tenants and the details of an individual tenant.
How do I get access to the Aura API?
Navigate to the Aura console, click on your email address in the top navigation, then to 'Account details'. The API credentials section is available to start creating credentials. Please be aware that the credentials are not saved in the console, and you should download and store these safely.
Where is my tenant ID?
Your tenant ID can be accessed by navigating to the tenant selector in the top navigation of the Aura Console, or through the /tenants endpoint
Where can I find additional help and documentation?
We're pleased to announce the launch of our AWS Marketplace integration for Aura Professional. Whether AWS is your primary cloud platform or part of your multi-cloud strategy, you can now easily build graph-powered applications with AuraDB.
The AWS Marketplace integration provides customers with the benefits of:To get started, simply sign up via the marketplace listing and then create or login to your Neo4j Aura account. You will then see the 'AWS Marketplace tenant' appear on the top navigation. All instances created within this tenant will be linked to your AWS account billing.
For now, each additional user who requires access to the Aura console will need to enable their account via the marketplace listing. In the future user management functionality will be available via the console.
Free and Professional users now see a tenant selector on the top navigation of the Aura Console.
By default, you'll see the 'New tenant', which is where the free instance can be accessed. Users who utilise our marketplace integrations for AWS and GCP will see separate tenants for these integrations.
When the Aura API is released publicly, customers can use the Tenant ID in their API requests to manage their DB and DS instances programatically.
Neo4j Ops Manager patch 1.8.3 is now available to download. This contains a number of security fixes, and we strongly advise that you upgrade to this version as soon as possible.

The Aura CLI provides customers with a command line interface to perform operations in Neo4j Aura
The Aura CLI is a command line interface created for Neo4j Aura as a Neo4j Labs Project that allows you to Create, List, Pause/Resume, Resize, Backup, Restore, Clone, and Delete Neo4j Aura databases from the terminal. Built in Neo4j Labs, the Aura CLI showcases how the Aura API can be used to achieve management tasks without the need for manual operations in the Aura Console.
Please see the Aura CLI documentation for more information and how you can get started using it. As this is a Neo4j Labs project, we welcome you to take part in Aura CLI's future by providing feedback or writing code.
Like any other Neo4j Labs project, Aura CLI is supported via the online community. It is actively developed and maintained, but Neo4j does not provide any SLAs or guarantees around backwards compatibility and deprecation.
Have fun at the command prompt!
Aura Product Team.
This is a maintenance release that updates the underlying JVMs Desktop uses to run Neo4j.
Neo4j Ops Manager 1.8 is a maintenance release, and is now available to download for Enterprise Edition self-managed customers from the download page.
This release of Data Importer brings two new features:
We've made a slight tweak to the Preview feature, allowing you to optionally preview selected parts of your our graph. If you have a particularly complex model, it can sometimes be hard to see how all the different nodes and relationship types being previewed are linking. In these scenarios you can use "Preview selected" to only preview selected parts of the model. This can help you validate specific parts of the model are mapped as expected. In the example below, only the Product, Supplier and SUPPLIES parts of the model will be previewed when using the "Preview selected" option.
Generate Cypher script
The Data Importer UI gives you a convenient way to generate your graph model and map data, but what happens if you want to take the import logic and use it somewhere else without the UI? Or what if the Data Importer UI doesn't quite allow the complex transformations that you need?
For these scenarios, we are now providing you the option to view and download a Cypher script representing your model and mapping. You can use these as-is, or adapt for more complex needs.
Examples of where you might use this generated code include:The load script itself is commented to help you understand the purpose of the different parts and where you might need to make changes, depending on where you're running it.
You can also choose to download the files with your script, which will give you a handy zip of the script and your files.
We hope you enjoy using these new features and as always please head over to https://feedback.neo4j.com/data-importer with any feedback.
This is a minor maintenance release with the following fixes and improvements:
Aura API provides Neo4j Aura Enterprise customers with a programmatic way to perform database operations in Neo4j Aura.
The ability to programmatically provision and manage databases is something that Aura Enterprise customers have been asking us for so that they can easily integrate Aura into their end-to-end pipelines, and automate the day-to-day management and running of their Aura estate.
Since Summer 2022, we’ve been on a journey to provide this ability to our customers. After a successful Beta program, we’re pleased to move to v1 (General Availability) of Aura API for our Enterprise customers.
Now with Aura API, all Enterprise customers have a secure programmatic way to Create, List, Pause/Resume, Resize, Backup, Restore, Clone, and Delete Neo4j databases as their business requires. Aura API is REST based making it easy to call from scripts or integrate with operational applications so that Aura databases can be managed without the need for any manual actions in the Console.
Please see our API docs for more information on how to get started, and reach out to your Account Manager or the Aura Support Team if you have any questions.
