Configuring update repositories

Talend Studio allows you to configure the update repositories for its feature packages and updates.

Before you begin

You must have the predefined Integration Developer role to retrieve the update settings that your administrator configured in Talend Management Console.


  1. From the menu bar, click Window > Preferences to display the Preferences dialog box.
    Alternatively, you can also configure the update repositories in the Preference dialog box opened from the Connections window before logging into a project. For more information, see Managing connections in Talend Studio.
  2. On the tree view in the Preferences dialog box, expand the Talend node and then click Update settings to display the relevant view.
    When logging into a project managed by Talend Management Console or Talend Administration Center, Talend Studio automatically retrieves the update settings that your administrator has configured in Talend Management Console or Talend Administration Center, which appear as read-only update URL. Talend Studio checks and retrieves updates every 15 minutes, and the changes in Talend Management Console or Talend Administration Center can take up to 30 minutes to take effect in Talend Studio.
    Information noteNote: If your project is managed by Talend Administration Center of version lower than 8.0 R2024-05, you can only setup Talend Studio update locally.

    If Talend Studio detects any update, a tiny red dot will be displayed next to the Feature Manager button on the top left corner and you will receive the update notification in the bottom right corner without restarting Talend Studio.

    For more information about managing the Talend Studio update settings in Talend Management Console, see Managing Talend Studio updates from Talend Management Console .

    For more information about managing the Talend Studio update settings in Talend Administration Center, see Managing Talend Studio updates from Talend Administration Center.

    For testing purposes, for example, if you want to use your own update settings, select the Use local update settings check box and specify the update URL by following the step below.

    Configure update repositories view.
  3. If you want to use the local update settings, in the Update URL field, enter the URL of the repository for Talend Studio feature packages and updates.

    Pay attention to the following before configuring the values for this field:

    • By default, the value of this field is set to the Talend official site.
    • If the Update URL field is empty, Talend Studio will not automatically detect and notify you about available updates. You need to keep the default value or enter a different URL.

      For more information about how to update Talend Studio, see:

      For more information about the update URL for each Talend Studio monthly update, see Talend Release Notes.

    • You can click Restore Defaults to fill this field with the Talend official site.
    • You can create proxy repositories or host the official Talend repositories and fill this field with proxy or host URL. For more information, see Setting up update repositories for Talend Studio and Continuous Integration.
    • If the basic authentication is enabled for any of the update repositories, select the Enable basic authentication check box under the corresponding URL field and enter your username and password for the corresponding update repository. For more information, see Basic authentication for update repositories in Talend Studio.
  4. Optional: If you want to automatically clean up obsolete libraries upon update installation, select the Clean up libraries check box.
    The Clean up libraries check box is also available in the update installation wizard. For more information, see Updating Talend Studio.
  5. Click Apply and Close to save your changes and close the dialog box.
