The Nebula Explorer page consists of three modules top navigation bar, left-side navigation bar, and canvas.

explorer-overview

Top navigation bar

Icon/Element Description
Explorer Visually explore and analyze data. For more information, see Start querying, Vertex Filter, Graph exploration and Graph algorithm.
Visual Query Visually construct scenarios for data queries. For more information, see Visual Query.
Workflow Visually construct custom workflows for complex graph computing. For more information, see Workflow overview.
create_schema Manage Nebula Graph database graph spaces. For more information, see Create a schema.
import_data Bulk import of data into Nebula Graph. For more information, see Import data.
Console Query the Nebula Graph data with nGQL statements. For more information, see Console.
language Select the language of Nebula Explorer page. Chinese and English are supported.
help Guide and help you in using Nebula Graph.
clear_connection Show the Nebula Graph version and allow you to disconnect from Nebula Explorer.

Left-side navigation bar

Note

After logging into Explorer, select a graph space and click on it to unlock query and exploration functions in the left-side navigation bar. For more information, see Choose graph spaces.

Click the icons in the left-side navigation bar to import, analyze, and explore graph data. The descriptions of the icons are as follows:

Icon Description
query Enter VIDs or tags to query data. For more information, see Ways to query data.
filter Search for target vertexes displayed on the canvas. For more information, see Filter vertices.
expand Perform explorations on the vertices on the canvas by setting edge directions, steps, and filtering conditions. For more information, see Graph exploration.
commonNeighbor Select at least two vertices on the canvas to search for their common neighbors. For more information, see Graph exploration.
findPath Find all paths, the shortest path, and the non-loop paths from the source to the destination vertex. For more information, see Graph exploration.
propertyView Choose whether to display the properties of vertices or edges on the canvas. For more information, see Graph exploration.
graph-algorithm Perform graph computing based on the vertexes and edges in the canvas. For more Information see Graph computing.
snapshot View historical snapshots. For more information, see Canvas snapshots.
graphSpace View all graph spaces. Click a graph space to create a canvas corresponding to it. For more information, see Choose graph spaces.
Help View Explorer documents and Nebula Graph forum.
Setup View your account, explorer version and shortcuts, limit returned results.

Canvas

Note

After logging into Explorer, select a graph space and click on it to enter the canvas page. For more information, see Choose graph spaces.

Graph data can be displayed visually on a canvas. The canvas consists of the following parts:

  • Tabs on the Top
  • Visualization modes
  • Data storage
  • Search box
  • Layouts
  • Minimap
  • Data overview

For more information, see Canvas overview.
