About this task

Information noteWarning: When Apache Kafka is installed on a Windows machine, the Kafka broker cannot delete old log files. This is due to how it manages files on Windows operating systems. If you install Apache Kafka on Windows, it will eventually stop working because it cannot purge old log files, which can cause Talend Data Preparation, Talend Data Stewardship, and Talend Dictionary Service to stop working. Talend recommends to install Apache Kafka on a Linux machine.


  1. Download Apache Kafka from and install it. For more information on how to install it, see Apache Kafka documentation.
    For more information on the supported Apache Kafka version, see Compatible messaging systems.
  2. Download a MongoDB instance from and install it. For more information on how to install it, see MongoDB documentation.
    For more information on the supported MongoDB databases, see Compatible databases.
    If you want to secure connections with MongoDB using SSL, MongoDB Enterprise Server has to be manually installed on your machine. For more information, see
  3. Add mongo to the PATH environment variable.
  4. Create the tds database in MongoDB using the following command: use tds.
  5. Create the following user for the tds database in MongoDB:
    • Username: tds-user

    • Password: duser

    To do this, you can use the following command:
    db.createUser( { user: "tds-user", pwd: "duser", roles: [{ role: "readWrite", db: "tds"}]})
  6. Download Apache Tomcat from and install it. For more information on how to install it, see Apache Tomcat documentation.
    For production environments, it is recommended to use a separate Tomcat instance for Talend Data Stewardship.
  7. Stop your Tomcat instance if it was automatically started.
  8. Unzip the to a TDS_files folder.
  9. Remove the contents of the <Tomcat>\webapps\ folder.
  10. Create a <Tomcat>\app folder and copy the .war files from TDS_files.
