Importing data models

From Talend Studio you can import data models into the current MDM Repository that have been created in other MDM Repositories.

Before you begin

You have already connected to the MDM server from Talend Studio. You have exported one or multiple data models from other MDM repositories.

About this task

To import one or multiple data models into the current MDM Repository:


  1. In the MDM Repository tree view, right-click the Data Model node and select Import items from the contextual menu.
    The Import items dialog box displays.
  2. Select the root directory or archive file option according to whether the data models you want to import are saved in a folder/archive file and then click Browse next to the option.
    A dialog box appears.
  3. Browse to the folder/archive file holding the data models and click OK/Open to close the dialog box.
  4. In the Import items dialog box, click Finish to validate your changes and close the dialog box.
    All data models in the folder/archive file are exported and listed under the Data Model node in the current Talend Studio.
    Information noteNote: If you want to import only one data model of all those saved in the folder/archive file, expand Data Model in the Import items dialog box and then select the check box next to the name of the data model you want to import and proceed as usual.
