Address and Etag of an Edge

All documents in ArangoDB have a document handle. This handle uniquely identifies a document. Any document can be retrieved using its unique URI:


Edges are a special variation of documents. To access an edge use the same URL format as for a document:


For example, assumed that the document handle, which is stored in the _id attribute of the edge, is demo/362549736, then the URL of that edge is:


The above URL scheme does not specify a database name explicitly, so the default database will be used. To explicitly specify the database context, use the following URL schema:




Note: that the following examples use the short URL format for brevity.
