Creating a data container


From Talend Studio you can create one or several data containers in the MDM Hub in which you can manage data records directly or you can load data using the tMDMInput and tMDMOutput components.

For more information about how to manage data records in a data container, see Managing records in a data container.

Later, an authorized business user can write/edit data in the created container using Talend MDM Web UI.

Before you begin

You have already connected to the MDM server from Talend Studio.

About this task

To create a data container, do the following:


  1. In the MDM Repository tree view, right-click Data Container and select New from the contextual menu.
    The New Data Container dialog box appears.
  2. Enter a name for the new data container. Make sure the name contains valid characters and does not already exist.
  3. Click OK to close the dialog box.


The newly created data container is listed under the Data Container node in the MDM Repository tree view.

To ensure the dependency of the newly created data container on the corresponding data model, you need to create the corresponding data model with the same name first. Otherwise, some errors will occur. For more information about object dependencies, see Managing item dependencies in the MDM Repository.

Information noteNote: In order to populate the data container with your data, you can use the Integration perspective in Talend Studio to design a Job using Talend MDM components. For an MDM Demo example, see Talend MDM demo project.
