Creating environments

An environment is a self-contained space with the required resources (connections, engines, and so on) that allow the execution of tasks and plans in isolation, with no impacts on other environments.

About this task

You can navigate between environments by using the Environment filter at the top of the Operations, Management and Processing pages.

The first time you log in to Talend Management Console only the default environment is available.


  1. Open the Environments page.
    You can see all the existing environments for this account. Each environment contains a number of workspaces and a list of engines and engine clusters.
  2. Click Add Environment.
  3. Enter the name of the environment.
    Information noteNote: If you are planning on using webhooks for scheduling executions, ensure that the environment name does not contain any special characters, only alphanumeric characters and underscores.
  4. Enter the name of the first workspace in the new environment.
  5. Optional: If you want another user to be the workspace owner, select their username from the drop-down list.
  6. Optional: Enter or select the number of Cloud Engines you want to allocate to this environment.
    Allocate Cloud Engines to the environment proportionally to the number of concurrent executions you plan to run. Three different tasks or plans can be run in parallel on a Cloud Engine.
  7. Optional: Enter the description of the environment.
  8. Click Save.


The environment is created with the workspace you specified.

To share the workspace, click the environment name then click the Share workspace icon next to the workspace name.

To add other workspaces to this new environment, click the environment name then Add workspace.
