Modify Graph

Update an existing graph network using given nodes, edges, weights, restrictions, and options.

IMPORTANT: It's highly recommended that you review the Network Graphs & Solvers concepts documentation, the Graph REST Tutorial, and/or some /match/graph examples before using this endpoint.

Input Parameter Description

NameTypeDescription
graph_namestringName of the graph resource to modify.
nodesarray of stringsNodes with which to update existing input parameter nodes in graph specified by input parameter graph_name. Review Nodes for more information. Nodes must be specified using identifiers; identifiers are grouped as combinations. Identifiers can be used with existing column names, e.g., 'table.column AS NODE_ID', expressions, e.g., 'ST_MAKEPOINT(column1, column2) AS NODE_WKTPOINT', or raw values, e.g., '{9, 10, 11} AS NODE_ID'. If using raw values in an identifier combination, the number of values specified must match across the combination. Identifier combination(s) do not have to match the method used to create the graph, e.g., if column names were specified to create the graph, expressions or raw values could also be used to modify the graph.
edgesarray of stringsEdges with which to update existing input parameter edges in graph specified by input parameter graph_name. Review Edges for more information. Edges must be specified using identifiers; identifiers are grouped as combinations. Identifiers can be used with existing column names, e.g., 'table.column AS EDGE_ID', expressions, e.g., 'SUBSTR(column, 1, 6) AS EDGE_NODE1_NAME', or raw values, e.g., "{'family', 'coworker'} AS EDGE_LABEL". If using raw values in an identifier combination, the number of values specified must match across the combination. Identifier combination(s) do not have to match the method used to create the graph, e.g., if column names were specified to create the graph, expressions or raw values could also be used to modify the graph.
weightsarray of stringsWeights with which to update existing input parameter weights in graph specified by input parameter graph_name. Review Weights for more information. Weights must be specified using identifiers; identifiers are grouped as combinations. Identifiers can be used with existing column names, e.g., 'table.column AS WEIGHTS_EDGE_ID', expressions, e.g., 'ST_LENGTH(wkt) AS WEIGHTS_VALUESPECIFIED', or raw values, e.g., '{4, 15} AS WEIGHTS_VALUESPECIFIED'. If using raw values in an identifier combination, the number of values specified must match across the combination. Identifier combination(s) do not have to match the method used to create the graph, e.g., if column names were specified to create the graph, expressions or raw values could also be used to modify the graph.
restrictionsarray of stringsRestrictions with which to update existing input parameter restrictions in graph specified by input parameter graph_name. Review Restrictions for more information. Restrictions must be specified using identifiers; identifiers are grouped as combinations. Identifiers can be used with existing column names, e.g., 'table.column AS RESTRICTIONS_EDGE_ID', expressions, e.g., 'column/2 AS RESTRICTIONS_VALUECOMPARED', or raw values, e.g., '{0, 0, 0, 1} AS RESTRICTIONS_ONOFFCOMPARED'. If using raw values in an identifier combination, the number of values specified must match across the combination. Identifier combination(s) do not have to match the method used to create the graph, e.g., if column names were specified to create the graph, expressions or raw values could also be used to modify the graph.
optionsmap of string to strings

Optional parameters. The default value is an empty map ( {} ).

Supported Parameters (keys)Parameter Description
restriction_threshold_valueValue-based restriction comparison. Any node or edge with a RESTRICTIONS_VALUECOMPARED value greater than the restriction_threshold_value will not be included in the graph.
export_create_results

If set to true, returns the graph topology in the response as arrays. The default value is false. The supported values are:

  • true
  • false
enable_graph_draw

If set to true, adds a 'EDGE_WKTLINE' column identifier to the specified graph_table so the graph can be viewed via WMS; for social and non-geospatial graphs, the 'EDGE_WKTLINE' column identifier will be populated with spatial coordinates derived from a flattening layout algorithm so the graph can still be viewed. The default value is false. The supported values are:

  • true
  • false
save_persist

If set to true, the graph will be saved in the persist directory (see the config reference for more information). If set to false, the graph will be removed when the graph server is shutdown. The default value is false. The supported values are:

  • true
  • false
add_table_monitor

Adds a table monitor to every table used in the creation of the graph; this table monitor will trigger the graph to update dynamically upon inserts to the source table(s). Note that upon database restart, if save_persist is also set to true, the graph will be fully reconstructed and the table monitors will be reattached. For more details on table monitors, see Create Table Monitor. The default value is false. The supported values are:

  • true
  • false
graph_tableIf specified, the created graph is also created as a table with the given name, in [schema_name.]table_name format, using standard name resolution rules and meeting table naming criteria. This table will have the following identifier columns: 'EDGE_ID', 'EDGE_NODE1_ID', 'EDGE_NODE2_ID'. If left blank, no table is created. The default value is ''.
remove_label_only

When RESTRICTIONS on labeled entities requested, if set to true this will NOT delete the entity but only the label associated with the entity. Otherwise (default), it'll delete the label AND the entity. The default value is false. The supported values are:

  • true
  • false
add_turns

Adds dummy 'pillowed' edges around intersection nodes where there are more than three edges so that additional weight penalties can be imposed by the solve endpoints. (increases the total number of edges). The default value is false. The supported values are:

  • true
  • false
turn_angleValue in degrees modifies the thresholds for attributing right, left, sharp turns, and intersections. It is the vertical deviation angle from the incoming edge to the intersection node. The larger the value, the larger the threshold for sharp turns and intersections; the smaller the value, the larger the threshold for right and left turns; 0 < turn_angle < 90. The default value is '60'.
