Graph API

Use the Graph API to read existing graph and graph containers in the system and is an api/v2 endpoint.

If not otherwise specified, the Content-Type of the request and response is application/json.
Resource

Method

Description

/graphs

GET

Retrieves the metadata of all registered graph containers.

/graphs/{containerid}

GET

Retrieve the container identified by {containerid}. Returns a 404 if a graph container with {containerid} does not exist.

/graphs/{containerid}/{namespace}

GET

Retrieve the graph with namespace {namespace} from the container {containerid}. Returns a 404 if either the {containerid} does not exist or the container does not contain any graphs with namespace {namespace}.

/graphs/{containerid}/{namespace}

POST

Retrieve the view of the graph with namespace {namespace} from the container {containerid}. The body must contain the query to create the view, e.g., { "semanticZoomLevel": 1, "verticesInFocus": []} If no semanticZoomLevel is provided, 1 is assumed. If no verticesInFocus is provided, the default focus of the graph is used. Valid values for verticesInFocus are vertex references (namespace:id tuple, e.g. dummy:1).

At the moment, the context of a search must always be a concrete namespace and can never be over all graphs or containers.

Resource

Method

Description

/graphs/search/suggestions/{namespace}?s={search}

GET

Provides suggestions in the context of {namespace} for the input {search}. Each suggestion has the following properties: context: The context of the suggestion, e.g., Node for a node, id: A unique identifier of the representing element of this suggestion, e.g., node id, label: A human-readable label, e.g., node label, provider: The source of the suggestion.

/graphs/search/results/{namespace}?providerId={providerid}&criteria={criteria}&context={context}

GET

Resolves a suggestion to actual vertices. The values for {providerid} and {context} are defined in the suggestion. The {criteria} is the {id} property of the suggestion.

The API allows you to query any container and graph via REST, but in most cases you should query only for a graph view.
