  2. Open the Configurations page.
  3. Click Studio in the top menu.
  4. Toggle ON the Enable artifact repository configuration option.
  5. Select the type of your Artifact Repository Manager.
    • Nexus 3

    Default settings:
    • Nexus 3: http://localhost:8081
    • Artifactory: http://localhost:8081/artifactory
  7. In Snapshot repository ID, enter the ID of the corresponding embedded repository that you created in your artifact repository. For example, talend-custom-libs-snapshot.
  8. Similarly, enter the Release repository ID. For example, talend-custom-libs-snapshot.

When you start the procedure to download and install missing third-party libraries from Talend Studio, and if Talend Studio is connected to Talend Management Console, it always downloads the libraries from the local repository you just set up. If a missing library doesn't exist in your local repository, it will first be downloaded from the remote repository managed by Talend. Then this library is automatically uploaded to your local repository where Talend Studio can download it.

As a consequence, the local repository contains mostly libraries that are retrieved from the remote repository managed by Talend. The few libraries in your local repository that are not from the remote repository are the ones that you installed manually. This happens when you need a library that is not provided by Talend.
