  4. Toggle ON the Enable artifact repository configuration option and click Configuration.
  5. Select the type of your Artifact Repository Manager.

    • Nexus 3 (from Talend Studio version 7.0)
    • Artifactory (from Talend Studio version 7.1)
  6. Enter the address of the Artifact Repository Manager.
    Default settings:
    • Nexus 3: http://localhost:8081
    • Artifactory: http://localhost:8081/artifactory
  7. Enter talend-custom-libs-snapshot as the Snapshot repository ID.
  8. Enter talend-custom-libs-release as the Release repository ID.
  9. Enter your username and password for the Artifact Repository Manager.
    Configuration of the artifact repository.
  10. Click Save.


At Talend Studio start-up the missing external libraries are detected and you are prompted to download and install them.

You can also install them manually, by clicking Help > Install Additional Packages and selecting Required third-party library, or by importing .jar files via Window > Talend > Modules > Import external jars.
