A NodeEra data model consists of Node and Relationship Templates.  As you design these templates, you may specify Neo4j property constraints and indexes as a part of the design.  When you are satisfied with your design, you can generate cypher create statements for each constraint.  This is called “Forward Engineering”, i.e. generating database objects from the data model.

Create or Open a Project

You must have a project open in order to perform forward engineering.  To do this simply use the Project / Open Project to open an existing project file.

See the Project Overview Tutorial for an explanation of Project’s and what they can do.
