Installing the Remote Engine automatically

Use the installer to automatically install Talend Remote Engine.


  1. Run the installer file as Administrator.
  2. Select the region of your Talend Cloud account.
    The region is reflected in your Talend Cloud URL following this pattern: <region> For example, if your URL is, you must select AWS - USA East as your region.
    More information in Talend Cloud regions and URLs with a list of the URLs to use for each data center.
  3. Paste the Remote Engine Key generated in Talend Management Console when you create the Remote Engine into the Preauthorized key box.
  4. Optional: Select the Use HTTP proxy checkbox and enter the server and port details.
  5. Optional: Select the Use Proxy Authentication checkbox and enter the user credentials.
  6. Optional: For Talend Remote Engine v2.13 and onwards, select the Java for Job/Microservice execution (Java 8/11/17) checkbox and in the JAVA_HOME field, enter the path to the home folder of the Java instance to be used for executions, for example, C:\Java\jdk-20.
    • When you select this option, the engine uses the specified Java instance to run Jobs or Microservices. However, note that this configuration does not impact the requirements for the startup of the engine, for which Java 17 is still required.
    • If you leave this checkbox clear, the default Java 17 version is used for executions.

    Whether you specify a Java instance or leave the default one, you can always specify a different Java version after the installation. To do this, follow these steps.

  7. Optional: Select the Install as a system service checkbox to make Remote Engine a service of your system.

    If you skip this step, you can still install your engine as a system service later by following Setting up Remote Engine service manually.

  8. Finish the installation by following the steps in the wizard.
