Support for SSO: OIDC / OAuth
Enterprises can now configure SSO login for Bloom. See the documentation to learn how you can leverage this capability. Supported providers at this time include OpenID Connect (OIDC) OAuth 2.0 providers Okta, KeyCloak, and Azure AD.
SSO has been tested on Neo4j 4.2.x and 4.3.x deployments.
Multi-user editing of Perspective
Any edits to the Perspective will now be updated in realtime for users that have access to the same Perspective. If any changes are found, they are merged, the current Perspective is refreshed, and a notification appears in the Perspective drawer.
The notifications tells you which user has made changes and when they were made.

Neo4j Bloom 1.7 - What's new?
new
Find
The Card list now includes a way to
Find
entities in your scene. Choose between
All, Nodes
or
Relationships
to narrow down your input result.

Auto Perspective
When using a database that does not have any Perspectives, Bloom will now quickly generate a new Perspective with all labels categorized instead of presenting the Perspective Gallery.
Explore data within seconds!
Reorder categories
Drag and drop categories to reorder them into a hierarchy that makes sense. The ordering of categories matters when a node has multiple labels, because the node can only belong to one category at a time. The category at the top of the list has the highest priority and determines the category of the nodes with multiple labels.

Refreshed Branding
neo4j-logo
Neo4j has finished a brand refresh and so has Bloom!
Here are some things that are new in Bloom:
New Bloom Icon
mstile-70x70
New Neo4j icon
nwoejixon
Session timeout setting
Control the duration of inactivity before Bloom logs the user out.
Screen Shot 2021-04-28 at 13
Notable improvements and fixes
  • Improved query performance in Neo4j 4.0+ by switching to the reactive driver functionality of Neo4j 4.x
  • Performance optimizations across the board to queries used when generating suggestions, giving you search suggestions much quicker particularly over slow network connections
  • Better handling of virtual nodes and relationships. The legend now shows relationship elements in the scene in an Other category when they don't belong to the available relationship types, similar to how Other node elements in the scene get categorized.

UI Improvements
