Logging information on edited items

About this task

With the Custom log option selected in Talend Administration Center, the users are required to log meta-information about all the changes made on any item of the relevant project stored in Git mode.

When you log on to a project for the first time after the project is created or modified in Talend Administration Center, and each time you are about to commit changes made to any item belonging to that project, the Commit changes window appears to prompt you to log the changes you have made.

This window consists of:

  • a text box where you can enter your comment on the commit,

  • an Additional logs tab, which contains the log information that will be appended to your comment,

  • a Change list tab, which lists the actual Talend Studio files that will be committed.

To log information on edited items, complete the following in the Commit changes window:

Information noteNote:

The read-only additional log at the bottom of the window lists a summary of all changes made to the current project, in case you have not committed them to Git at each individual change.

For a Git project, appending additional logs is optional. This allows you to provide your own commit logs to satisfy strict syntax rules of your Git server in some circumstances, for example when you are working with a Git server hook, if the automatically generated logs do not comply with the syntax rules and may cause your commit to fail.


  1. Type in your comment conforming your Git commit log pattern convention in the text box.
  2. Click Finish when you completed the form. Or click Cancel if you want to postpone the change log to a later stage.


Information noteNote: The log prompt will append all changes that you have not committed to the Git yet. So you can choose to log information after several actions, rather than on every action.
