A GDB connection allows you to write data to Graph Database (GDB). You can configure sync nodes for GDB by using the code editor.

Background information

GDB is a real-time and reliable online database service that makes it easy to store and navigate the relationships between highly connected datasets. GDB supports the Property Graph model and uses Apache TinkerPop Gremlin as the query language. GDB allows you to build queries that navigate highly connected datasets more efficiently.

Workspaces in standard mode support the connection isolation feature. You can add connections for the development and production environments separately and isolate the connections to protect your data security. For more information, see Connection isolation.

Procedure

  1. Go to the Data Source page.
    1. Log on to the DataWorks console.
    2. In the left-side navigation pane, click Workspaces.
    3. In the top navigation bar, select the region where your workspace resides. Find your workspace and click Data Integration in the Actions column.
    4. On the page that appears, click Connection in the left-side navigation pane. The Data Source page appears.
  2. On the Data Source page, click New data source in the upper-right corner.
  3. In the Add data source dialog box, click Graph Database in the NoSQL section.
  4. In the Add Graph Database data source dialog box, set the parameters as required.
    Add data source
    Parameter Description
    Data Source Name The name of the connection. The name can contain letters, digits, and underscores (_), and must start with a letter.
    Description The description of the connection. The description can be up to 80 characters in length.
    Applicable environment The environment in which the connection is used. Valid values: Development and Production.
    Note This parameter is displayed only when the workspace is in standard mode.
    Graph instance domain name The endpoint of the GDB instance. To obtain the endpoint, perform the following steps: Log on to the GDB console. On the Instances page, find the instance whose details you want to view and click View Instance Details in the Action column. On the page that appears, view the value of Intranet URL in the Basic Information section.
    Graph instance Port The port that you can use to connect to the GDB instance. To obtain the port, perform the following steps: Log on to the GDB console. On the Instances page, find the instance whose details you want to view and click View Instance Details in the Action column. On the page that appears, view the value of Intranet Port in the Basic Information section.
    Graph instance account The username that you can use to connect to the GDB instance. To obtain the username, perform the following steps: Log on to the GDB console. On the Instances page, find the instance whose information you want to view and click View Instance Details in the Action column. On the page that appears, click Account Management in the left-side navigation pane and view the username in the Account column on the User Account tab.
    Graph instance password The password that you can use to connect to the GDB instance.
  5. On the Data Integration tab, click Test connectivity in the Operation column of each resource group.
    A sync node uses only one resource group. To ensure that your sync nodes can be properly run, you must test the connectivity of all the resource groups for Data Integration on which your sync nodes will be run. If you need to test the connectivity of multiple resource groups for Data Integration at a time, select the resource groups and click Batch test connectivity. For more information, see Test data store connectivity.
  6. After the connection passes the connectivity test, click Complete.
