Refer back to earlier results of a batch using the {n} notation:

@neo.batch [:create_node, {"name" => "Max"}],
           [:create_node, {"name" => "Marc"}],                           # Creates two nodes and index them
           [:add_node_to_index, "test_node_index", key, value, "{0}"],
           [:add_node_to_index, "test_node_index", key, value, "{1}"],
           [:create_relationship, "friends",                             # and create a relationship for those
             "{0}", "{1}", {:since => "college"}],                       # newly created nodes
             "test_relationship_index", key, value, "{4}"]               # and index the new relationship
