Customizing the Maven URI for external module deployment

In Talend Studio, each external module is given a default URI to identify its deployment in Maven. When needed, you can change the Maven URI.

For example, when replacing an installed database driver with a new version, you need to specify another Maven URI for it.

Information noteNote:

Changing the Maven URI for an external module will affect all the components and metadata connections that use the module within the project.

When working on a remote project, your custom Maven URI settings will be automatically synchronized to the Talend Artifact Repository and will be used when other users working on the same project install the external module.


  1. In the Modules view, click the Maven URI you want to customize and then click the [...] button that appears.
    The Install Module dialog box opens.
  2. If you want to install another version of the external module, specify the full path to the module file in the Module File field, or click the [...] button to browse in your local file system.
    If the MVN URI of the library is within the jar file and is different from the default MVN URI, it is automatically detected and filled in the Custom MVN URI field.
    Install Module dialog box.
  3. Select the Custom MVN URI check box and enter a new URI in the field.
  4. Click Detect the module install status and then OK to validate the custom URI and close the dialog box.


The new Maven URI takes effect and is displayed in the Modules view, from which you can export all your Maven URI changes into a local JSON file.
