Generating a job-based Trigger


Talend Studio enables you to automatically generate Triggers based on the Jobs listed under the Job Designs node in the MDM Repository tree view.

Once the Job-based Trigger is generated, it will initiate, when kicked off, the data integration Process defined in the Job.

For more information on creating and managing Triggers, see Triggers.

Before you begin

You have already connected to the MDM server from Talend Studio. At least one Job is created in the Integration perspective.

About this task

To generate a Job-based Trigger:


  1. In the MDM Repository tree view, expand the Job Designs node.
  2. Right-click the Job on which you want to generate a Trigger and then select Generate Talend Job Caller Trigger.
    The generated Trigger holding the name of the generated Job displays under Event Management - Trigger in the MDM Repository tree view.
  3. If required, double-click the generated job-based Trigger to open an editor in the workspace that lists the Trigger parameters.


From this editor, you can modify any of the Trigger parameters, if required.
