What is Workbase?

The Grakn Workbase, along with the Graql Console and the Grakn Clients, is an interface through which we can read from a Grakn knowledge graph. Workbase allows us to execute Graql get and compute path queries, and visualise and investigate their results. Whether you need a tool to test and experiment with your newly created Grakn knowledge graph, or that you prefer a graphical interface for reading data from Grakn, you will find Workbase extremely useful.

[Important] Workbase is the newest member of the Grakn family of products and will undergo heavy development in years to come. At the moment, Workbase may only be used to _read_ data from a Grakn knowledge graph. In the next release, Workbase will include the graphical interface for designing and visualising the schema. The future releases of Workbase are aimed at enabling write operations as well.

In the sections that follow, we learn how to connect Workbase with the Grakn Server, execute and visusalise queries and interact with the visualiser to investigate the results.
