Create a Visualization with URL Parameters

There are several URL parameters that can be passed to a blank graph visualization created with the /visualization service. The parameters are used to load the initial set of nodes and relationships into the visualization. After that, the user can explore the graph as needed.

The URL consists of several parts:

  • the base path of the Graphlytic instance, e.g. https://graphlytic.instance

  • the visualization service /visualization

  • URL parameters, e.g. ?p=1&vis=14&nodes=23

Parameter

Description

Example

p

Specifies the project ID. Has to be defined in every usage of URL parameters. If used without any other URL parameter then a blank visualization in the specified project is opened.

https://graphlytic.instance/visualization?p=1

nodes

Adds nodes defined by internal ID to a blank graph visualization created in project specified by the "p" parameter. Values in the "nodes" parameter are separated with commas (","). Can be combined with the "vis" parameter to add nodes to an existing visualization.

https://graphlytic.instance/visualization?p=1&nodes=23,653,9713

vis

Opens an existing visualization identified by the ID passed in the "vis" parameter together with the project ID passed in the "p" parameter. Can be combined with the "nodes" parameter to add nodes to an existing visualization.

https://graphlytic.instance/visualization?p=1&vis=14

https://graphlytic.instance/visualization?p=1&vis=14&nodes=23,69,420

cq

Cypher Query passed with the "cq" parameter will be requested from the server right after a blank visualization in the project identified by the "p" parameter is created. Pass any Cypher query (URL encoded) but don't forget that the URL length limit is around 2000 characters.
