Using the advanced search capabilities

Talend MDM Web UI provides you with advanced search capabilities. You can construct search expression by chaining complex statements graphically. Additionally, these advanced searches can be saved or "bookmarked".

Before you begin

  • The MDM server is already launched.
  • You have been assigned a role with the appropriate user authorization and access rights.
  • At least one view has been created in Talend Studio. For more information, see Creating a View.
Information noteNote:

Make sure that you have selected:

  • the data container that holds the master data you want to manage,
  • the data model against which the master data will be validated.
