The commands to create or drop a database (CREATE DATABASE or DROP DATABASE) are not enabled currently within Neo4j Aura, as multi database in a single instance of Neo4j Aura is unavailable at this time.
The current model to achieve this logical separation of your data is achieved by using multiple instances of AuraDB within your Aura console. By using instances you also ensure there are dedicated resources for each databases and a simpler management of data backups and restores, as well as role based access control (Enterprise tier only).
If you are a Neo4j Aura customer on the Enterprise tier, it is possible to house multiple copies of the same graph in a single database instance. This could be helpful if you wanted to combine all of your non-production environments into a single AuraDB database, for example. The knowledge base article Using Node Labels and RBAC to differentiate between two sets of (same) data in a single AuraDB Enterprise Instance explains how to achieve this.
