Tracking node history in neo4j
I am using community version Neo4j 2.1.4. I have a hierarchy of 4 levels and the names of each level, which I treated as the label name for that level. So I only have 4 labels on my chart. Now for the first time I loaded the csv file into neo4j and using keywords
, created nodes and relationships. In the future, this requirement looks like
if someone wants to rename the hierarchy level name to some new name, then I have to change the label name to a new name.
if any of the property name of node changes to to new name
In both cases, I wanted to track the history of node. How should I do it? So in the future, someone wants to see the details of the story, they can request and receive details.
So how can I keep track of the details of the history of nodes in neo4j?
My approximation: The first time I load the csv file and create nodes and relationships. Then if someone wants to change the label name of node A (standard level name) which has properties like ID, name, start_date, end_date, Status.Then I will replicate node A with all properties and change the status to
and I will overwrite the old node with new details. But I don't know if this solution will work or not. Also I have over 10000 nodes in my db.
So please suggest me a better approach for tracking node history.
