Setting up the InterActor Sandbox

The InterActor Sandbox is the quickest and easiest way to experience InterActor and requires no download.

Getting up and running with InterActor Community Edition requires only two steps!

Step 1: Make sure you have an online Neo4j graph store

The InterActor Sandbox connects to an online Neo4j graph store. If you already have one, cool. If you don't, create one with providers like Neo Technology (provides datasets to experiment with!), GrapheneDB or GraphStory. When creating an online Neo4j graph store, you will receive the url, port number and credentials that you need to activate your InterActor Sandbox.

Step 2: Sign up with InterActor and follow the instructions

Sign up with InterActor and you'll be send an Account activation e-mail with a link. From this link you can set your password and connect to your Neo4j graph store by entering the url, port number and credentials from the previous step. Once the configuration is saved you'll be forwarded to the InterActor login page where you login with your InterActor username and password.

That's all, happy Interacting!

A few notes

InterActor writes to your store; backup your existing Neo4j graph database!

InterActor Sandbox runs the Community Edition of InterActor which does not allow you to connect to multiple graph stores (you need InterActor Enterprise to do that). InterActor function nodes will thus be stored as [:InterActor] nodes in the same graph store as your data. You should therefore make adequate backups of any valuable data before activating your InterActor Sandbox!

Limitations of the Sandbox InterActor Community Edition

The InterActor Sandbox does not impose any limitations in terms of number of nodes and relationships that you can store! It does however have a number of functional limitations:

  • A single graph store, a single dashboard, a single user
  • No MapView, Chartview, TimeLineView, CalendarView
  • No batch triggers, conditional triggers, advanced code evaluation, path constructs
