Adding a Live Dataset in Talend Data Preparation

After creating the execution task that is ready to run in Talend Administration Center, the data can now be retrieved in Talend Data Preparation in the form of a dataset.


  1. Log in to Talend Data Preparation using your user email address and password for your account.
  2. Click Datasets to open the list of datasets.
  3. Click the white arrow next to Add Dataset and select Talend Job.

    The Add Talend Job Dataset window opens.

  4. In the Dataset name field, enter a name for the new dataset.
  5. In the Username and Password fields, enter your Talend Data Preparation authentication data.

    The credentials must belong to a user that has the right to create and run execution tasks in Talend Administration Center.

  6. Click Test connection.

    If the connection is successful, the second part of the form is displayed, where you can choose from the list of execution tasks that are ready to run in Talend Administration Center for the user listed in the Talend Data Preparation configuration file. If the connection is not successful, an error message is displayed, detailing why the connection failed.

  7. In the Task drop-down list, select the execution Job from which the dataset will be created.
  8. Click Add dataset.


The data retrieved from the Job execution directly opens in the grid and you can start working on your preparation.

The dataset is added to the list in the Datasets view of the homepage.
