Customizing audit database

About this task

By default, Talend Studio provides an embedded H2 audit database. This is a one-shot database and is cleared once the audit action is complete. To track your project audit history, you need to define a custom database.


  1. Click on the toolbar of the Talend Studio main window, or click File > Edit Project properties from the menu to open the Project Settings dialog box, and then click Audit to open the Audit view.
  2. Select the Save report in databases check box.
  3. Select your database type and version, and enter the database parameters in the corresponding fields, including the URL, username, and password.
    Information noteWarning: Make sure that the specified database is empty or dedicated to auditing the current project. Otherwise, audit report generation will fail.


  4. Click Check Connection to validate your database connection.
  5. Click Apply to validate your changes and OK to close the dialog box.


With the Save report in databases check box selected, when generating an audit report the audit data is saved to the database you defined.
