Launching Talend Studio and logging in to it via Talend Cloud

If you are working with Talend Cloud, you can launch Talend Studio and log in to it via Talend Cloud.

Information noteNote: Logging in to Talend Studio via Talend Cloud is currently unsupported for Linux on ARM64.

Before you begin

  • You must have the predefined Integration Developer role to fetch the license from Talend Management Console.

  • To avoid selecting your region manually when connecting to Talend Cloud, you can set the default region for Talend Cloud by adding the -Dtalend.tmc.datacenter=<region> parameter in the corresponding .ini file under the Talend Studio installation directory according to your operating system. <region> is the abbreviation of the region, which can be found in the Talend Cloud URL. For example, ap for the Asia Pacific region, and us-west for the United States — West region. For more information, see Talend Cloud regions and URLs.


  1. Go to the Talend Studio installation directory.
    The Talend Studio installation directory contains binaries for several platforms including Windows, Linux, and MacOS.
  2. If you are not working on Rocky Linux 8.5, double-click the executable file corresponding to your operating system.

    Note that if you work on MacOS and install Talend Studio manually using the zip archive file, you might get one of the following two messages as shown in below screenshots when trying to launch Talend Studio for the first time. To fix the issue, you can open the terminal, go to the directory above the Talend Studio top directory, execute the command xattr -d <Talend-Studio>/*, where <Talend-Studio> is the root folder name of Talend Studio, and then relaunch your Talend Studio.

If you want to use those features that are not shipped with Talend Studio by default, you need to install them using the Feature Manager wizard. For more information, see Managing features in Talend Studio.

Talend Studio requires specific third-party Java libraries or database drivers (.jar files) to be able to connect to sources and targets. These libraries or drivers, known as external modules, are required by some Talend components and/or connection wizards. Due to license restrictions, Talend may not be able to ship certain external modules within Talend Studio. For more information, see Installing external modules.
