User Guide (API Version 2017-11-29)

Using the Gremlin API with Amazon Neptune


Amazon Neptune does not support the bindings property.

Gremlin HTTPS requests all use a single endpoint: https://your-neptune-endpoint:port/gremlin. Although it is possible to use HTTP rather than HTTPS in some AWS Regions, the best practice for security is to use HTTPS. All examples in the documentation are for HTTPS connections.

You can connect the Gremlin Console to a Neptune graph directly through WebSockets.

For more information about connecting to the Gremlin endpoint, see Accessing the Neptune Graph with Gremlin.

The Amazon Neptune implementation of Gremlin has specific details and differences that you need to consider. For more information, see Neptune Gremlin Implementation Differences.

For information about the Gremlin language and traversals, see The Traversal in the Apache TinkerPop documentation.
