tCouchbaseDCPInput Standard properties


These properties are used to configure tCouchbaseDCPInput running in the Standard Job framework.

The Standard tCouchbaseDCPInput component belongs to the Databases NoSQL family.

The component in this framework is available in all Talend products with Big Data and in Talend Data Fabric.

Basic settings

Bootstrap nodes

Enter the name or IP of the node to be bootstrapped by Couchbase SDK. As Couchbase recommends to specify multiple nodes to bootstrap, enter the names or IPs of these nodes in this field, separating them using commas (,).

For further information about Couchbase bootstrapping, see How Couchbase SDKs connect to the cluster.

You can find the node names on the Servers page in your Couchbase Web Console. If you need further information, contact the administrator of your Couchbase cluster or consult your Couchbase documentation.

Note that the Couchbase servers do not support proxies; for this reason, the Couchbase components from Talend do not support proxies either.


Provide the authentication credentials to a bucket.

To enter the password, click the [...] button next to the password field, enter the password in double quotes in the pop-up dialog box, and click OK to save the settings.

If you are using Couchbase V5.0 and onwards, enter the same value you put in the Bucket field as password, because since Couchbase V5.0, no password is associated with a bucket. However, on Couchbase, you need to create a user with appropriate role to access the buckets.

For further information about the access control and other important requirements on the Couchbase side, see Couchbase release note of your version.

Schema and Edit Schema

A schema is a row description. It defines the number of fields (columns) to be processed and passed on to the next component. When you create a Spark Job, avoid the reserved word line when naming the fields.

The schema of this component is read-only. The content column stores the documents to be used, the key column the IDs of these documents and the other columns the Couchbase technical information.


Enter, within double quotation marks, the name of the data bucket in the Couchbase database.

Ensure that the credentials you are using have the appropriate rights and permissions to access this bucket.

If you are using Couchbase V5.0 and onwards, this bucket name is the user name you have created in the Security tab of your Couchbase UI.

Advanced settings

Connect Timeout Define the timeout interval (in seconds) for the connection to be aborted.

Global Variables

Global Variables

NB_LINE: the number of rows read by an input component or transferred to an output component. This is an After variable and it returns an integer.

ERROR_MESSAGE: the error message generated by the component when an error occurs. This is an After variable and it returns a string. This variable functions only if the Die on error check box is cleared, if the component has this check box.

A Flow variable functions during the execution of a component while an After variable functions after the execution of the component.

To fill up a field or expression with a variable, press Ctrl+Space to access the variable list and choose the variable to use from it.

For more information about variables, see Using contexts and variables.


Usage rule

As a start component, tCouchbaseDCPInput reads the documents from the Couchbase database.
