What is Neo4j Aura for GCP?
Neo4j Aura for GCP allows you to provision and manage Neo4j Aura databases from the GCP Console while taking advantage of integrated GCP billing. It's the same great Neo4j Aura service integrated into your GCP account.
Step 1 : Purchase the Service
To get started, visit the Neo4j Aura for GCP Marketplace page (use direct link instead of search market place) and click the "Purchase" button. Note that you won't be billed until you create a database, so purchasing Neo4j Aura on GCP simply gets you started.
Step 2 : Choose a Project
If you purchase the service at the top level of your GCP account, you'll need to choose a target Project. In truth, you only Purchase Neo4j Aura for GCP once and then Enable it on a project-by-project basis, but you still need to choose a target Project when first purchasing the service.
Step 3 : Enable the Service
Once you've purchased the service and switched to a target Project, you'll get the option to Enable the service for that Project. Click "Enable" to activate Neo4j Aura for GCP on your Project.
Step 4 : Manage on Neo4j
Once you enable the service, you'll land on the Neo4j Aura for GCP API page. This page shows you service details and billing information. For now, you'll see that you have no billing history.
To start a database, you need to head over to the Neo4j Aura website by clicking MANAGE VIA NEO4J, INC.
Note : when you click "MANAGE VIA NEO4J, INC.", you'll be alerted that "You're leaving Google". Click "Confirm". If the Neo4j website fails to open, defeat any popup blockers and try again.
Step 5 : Sign In to Neo4j Aura with Google
For security, GCP and Neo4j don't share your login credentials. This means that need to log in to the Neo4j Aura website with the Google account you use on GCP.
Once logged-in, you'll be asked to accept the Neo4j Aura Terms of Service.
Step 6 : You're All Set!
Once you accept the Terms of Service, you'll be directed to the Neo4j Aura dashboard. From here, you can create a Neo4j Aura database hosted in the GCP region of your choice. Usage will be billed directly to your GCP billing account.
