Release Notes

What’s new in Technopedia Version 6.2.1

Technopedia V6.2.1 introduced the following enhancements on October 23, 2018:

Case insensitive queries

In Technopedia Version 6.2.0, when you made a query by using the equals (=) operator, results were returned only when the data matched the case in the query.
Now, you can make case insensitive queries when you type a tilde (~) before the equals (=) operator in the query.
For example, MATCH (a:ASSET) WHERE a.owner ~= 'microsoft' RETURN a.owner, a.title LIMIT 1

Filter by null values

Filter by null values in Technopedia to refine your query and get cleaner, more refined results.
Filter Technopedia attribute values by specifying IS NULL or IS NOT NULL in your query.
For example,
MATCH (a:ASSET) WHERE a.product IS NOT NULL RETURN a LIMIT 5
MATCH (a:ASSET) WHERE a.product IS NULL RETURN a LIMIT 5

Improved API performance

Improved API performance that enables faster query response times from the Technopedia database.

The following examples show queries and their responses that demonstrate the query enhancements:

MATCH (a:ASSET) WHERE a.product ~= 'ees' RETURN a.title, a.product, a.type LIMIT 5
