Configuring data-sources

A data-source is a conceptual representation of a graph database within Linkurious Enterprise. Visualizations and other user data created within Linkurious Enterprise will be associated their respective data-source.

Every data-source is uniquely identified with a sourceKey, a string computed from the url and the store id of the database.

Modifying the url or regenerating a database will result in Linkurious Enterprise generating a new sourceKey, consequently creating a new data-source with new information. If this behaviour is not desirable, consider using a stable sourceKey.

By default, Linkurious Enterprise is configured to connect to a Neo4j database at
