  1. Gremlin console in Azure portal

    Currently the option to do search queries in azure portal with gremlin is very slow. To avoid the setup of a local Gremlin console, it would be an improvement to have a gremlin console integrated into the portal. No need to specify connection string and keys, just ready to use and fast.

    Would same time to each developer and be a frictionless no setup, just ready to use.

  2. Add more options for GraphSONMode

    Currently I am using the GraphSONMode.Normal to get adjcency information of a 'vertex' but then I only use the outgoing edge information and ignore the incomming edge information.

    From optimization point of view we should add more options to have more fine-grained control on the output format of the gremlin query.

    I would like to suggect that we add 'IncludeOutE' option for GraphSONMode to return GraphSON format including only Outgoing edge information and 'IncludeInE' option to return GraphSON format including only Incomming edge information.

  3. Add a json data type

    I have json data i dont need to query but would like to be able to persist to a vertex. In my particular case the json is data for a client side quilljs editor. I dont need to be able to query or manipualte it on the server only retrieve it.

  4. CosmosDB's implementation of the Tinkerpop DSL has a wrong/missing signature for limit(...)

    Tinkerpop's GraphTraversal DSL suggests that the limit-operator should take a value of type long, i.e. a 64 bit number. Microsofts version of that operator however seems to only accept values of type int (which is 32 bit). This is not a problem if we only use queries without any bindings, i.e.

    g.addV('person').property('firstName', 'Bob').limit(1)

    will just work fine. Trouble starts whenever we use bindings (using Gremlin.net, the seemingliy now preferred way to query CosmosDB graph). Issuing

    g.addV('person').property('firstName', 'Bob').limit(x)

    with a binding of 'x' to (long)1 will throw the following exception:

    Gremlin.Net.Driver.Exceptions.ResponseException: 'ScriptEvaluationError:

    ActivityId : 919d7a89-70fd-43d1-b736-e1d1bb9aa7ac

  5. Support multi-properties in GraphBulkExecutor.

    Gremlin API, supports:
    Multiple properties (multi-properties): a vertex(edge) property key can have multiple values. For example, a vertex can have multiple "name" properties.

    Properties on properties (meta-properties): a vertex(edge) property can have properties (i.e. a vertex property can have key/value data associated with it).

    So, now it's impossible to upload data with such properties with GraphBulkExecutor.

  6. Allow shortestPath and sum steps

    I want to make traversals finding the shortest path between one or more vertices. I need to be able to use shortestPath step or at least have sum step to sum up the edge weights to accomplish this.

  7. Cheat seat has misspelled for Graph

    Graph spelling in "Graph object attributes" section is written as Grapph.
    which is wrong. Please fix it.

  8. [Gremlin] Paging Support

    Please add paging support for Cosmos Graph DB via the Gremlin API. Traversing the whole graph for a large set of vertices can be very expensive. Paging would allow better efficiency when targeting a subset of a large set of vertices.

  9. Use a domain ontology (RDF/OWL) as a scheme in Graph DB?

    In Cosmos Graph DB, I would like to be able to import a domain ontology (RDF/OWL) as a scheme to model data.

  12. Able to view entire graph in the data explorer

    I would like to be able to view my entire graph in the data explorer. At least this should be possible for small graphs. Right now as you traverse, the explorer removes the previous nodes from the graphical view. This is really a pain for small graphs where you want to view the complete the picture. I can understand the new for big graphs but for small ones you should allow displaying the entire graph.

    Also, it should be possible to view edge properties on the data explorer without looking at the tab view.
