Editing a task identification from the data container


Some of the data records in the MDM Hub are the result of merging /resolving different information coming from heterogeneous sources. Resolving such information is done through Talend Data Stewardship and then the master data record is written in the hub using some MDM components in a Talend Job.

Sometimes these task identifications are not correct or even not set at all. Talend Studio enables you to show and set/edit these task identifications attached to the data records.

Before you begin

You have already connected to the MDM server in Talend Studio. A data container, to which you have the right to access, exists and is populated with data records. Some of these data records come from the Talend Data Stewardship.

About this task

To edit a task identification from the data container, do the following:


  1. In the MDM Repository tree view, expand the Data Container node.
  2. Double-click the data container that holds the data records that come from the Talend Data Stewardship.
  3. A dialog box opens, asking you to select an appropriate MDM server.
    Once you have made your choice, click OK to close the dialog box.
  4. The data container editor opens with a master data container view. You are allowed to edit the task identification in the master data container view.
    Information noteNote: If the data container is configured with the staging storage, a staging data container view will also be available.
    If required, set a search criteria according to your needs, or leave the fields empty to display all the data records in the container.
  5. Select the Show Task ID check box and then click the icon.
    The lower part of the editor lists all data records that match the search criteria along with their creation dates, the business entities they were created in, their unique keys and finally the task identification.
  6. Right-click the data record for which you want to edit/set the task identification.
  7. Select Edit TaskId from the contextual menu to open the Edit TaskId dialog box.
  8. Set the task identification if it does not exist or edit it if it is not correct, and then click OK to validate your modifications and close the dialog box.
    The task identification is displayed in the TaskId column of the selected record.
