Using graph in DataStax Studio

Interactively create and explore contextual views of data.

Graph databases are useful for discovering simple and complex relationships between objects. Relationships are fundamental to how objects interact with one another and their environment. Graph databases perfectly represent the relationships between objects.

Using DSE Graph in DataStax Studio provides an interactive way to:
  • Compose Gremlin traversals and view results in multiple dynamic views such as JSON, table, charts, and graph
  • Leverage Studio's schema view and schema-aware content-assist for rapid Gremlin Traversal development
  • Manipulate the graph view with interactive graph
    • Expand vertex neighborhoods
    • Remove vertices and edges from view

DataStax Graph 6.8 and DataStax Studio can work with two graph engines, Core and Classic. Classic is the graph type of DSE Graph 6.7 and earlier, while Core is a new graph type for DataStax Graph 6.8. Studio can create graphs using either format. When creating a new graph in Studio, DataStax recommends using the Core graph type because Classic is included to migrate older graphs to the new Core type.

For an interactive introduction to working with DSE Graph in Studio, see the DSE Graph notebook tutorials that are installed with Studio:
Working with Graph v6.8.0
Introduces the DSE Graph-centric features of Studio and provides a basic introduction to vertices sizes, edge colors, and using interactive graph features. Learn how to:
  • Use display name templates to improve the display names shown in graph view
  • Dynamically view results in multiple views such as JSON, table, charts, and graph
  • Examine a subset of a graph based on an edge label, a set of edge labels, or a set of edges
  • Select vertices and edges, learn about vertices sizes and colors
  • Use full screen
  • Hide the code editor
  • Use content assist and schema-aware content assist for Gremlin code
  • Use schema view to see what is connected and how
Learn about charting to visualize data results. Learn how to view help for efficient keyboard shortcuts.

The Studio graph view provides a contextual view of a result by automatically populating the entire sub-graph shared between the result's vertices and edges. The Gremlin result is examined:
  • If a result contains vertices, then all edges linking those vertices are automatically populated.
  • If a result contains edges, then the adjacent vertices are automatically populated.
  • If the result is a subgraph, then it is displayed as-is.
Path results can contain arbitrary Java objects (not just vertices and edges), so path results are not rendered by the graph view.
