Clarification regarding the env variable NEO4J_DATABASE and AURA_INSTANCE

Hi I’m trying to figure out the difference between the env variables in the subject from the third lecture (the notebook setup). When you sign up for the Neo4j account online, it gives you the credentials such as

NEO4J_URI =
NEO4J_USERNAME =
NEO4J_PASSWORD =
AURA_INSTANCEID=
AURA_INSTANCENAME=

It does not give you explicitly the NEO4J_DATABASE which is a required env variable for the notebook. Is the NEO4J_DATABASE the same as the AURA_INSTANCEID provided by the Neo4j enrollment workflow? Or is it something different.

Hi @Tim_D,

NEO4J_DATABASE is always ‘neo4j’ on Aura.

Hope this helps.
