Installing Talend CommandLine


  1. Copy the archive file onto the machine where you want to install Talend CommandLine. This machine can be the same as your Web application, Talend Administration Center, but not necessarily.
  2. Unzip it under a folder the name of which does not contain any space character.
  3. If needed, rename the decompressed folder to CmdLine for more clarity.
    Information noteWarning: Renaming the folder of your Talend CommandLine into CommandLine is causing problems, so it is recommended to rename it differently or not to rename it at all.
    In this directory, the file lets you launch the Talend CommandLine program.
  4. By default, after the first connection to the Studio, the license file is automatically put at the root of the Talend CommandLine installation directory. If not, put the license file provided by Talend at the root of this directory.
    Note that, during the first connection to the remote repository via Talend Administration Center, the external libraries required by some components and connection metadata are retrieved from the Git or SVN directory defined on the Configuration page of Talend Administration Center. Therefore, it is important that you first install Talend Administration Center, you configure it and you connect the Studio to the remote repository before you launch CommandLine in order to avoid errors during code generation of Jobs related to these required external libraries. For more information about how to set up the Git or SVN directory where the external libraries are stored, see the Talend Administration Center User Guide.

    Apache Subversion is deprecated from 7.3.1 R2021-08 release onwards

  5. Run the file.
    For reasons of rights management, make sure you launch Talend CommandLine using the same administrator account as for Apache Tomcat. For example, you can create an DIAdmin account for both Apache Tomcat and Talend CommandLine.
    Information noteNote: If you need to change the port number (by default 8002), simply edit the file and change the port number.
  6. You can stop Talend CommandLine execution by pressing Ctrl+C.
  7. If you chose to install Talend CommandLine on a different machine than Talend Administration Center, then you need to configure the Talend CommandLine access parameters in the Configuration page of Talend Administration Center Web application. For more information, see the Talend Administration Center User Guide.


For more information about Talend CommandLine usage, see Appendix A of the Talend Administration Center User Guide.
