Resource parameters

Resources parameters are context parameters you can define in the Talend Studio artifacts.

When an artifact containing a resource parameter is published to Talend Cloud, all parameter values are cleared and the resources must be added in Talend Management Console either during the creation or editing of a task, the logical entity of this artifact, or on the Management > <Workspace> > Resources page.

During task execution a temporary folder is created, but only for the duration of the execution. Independent of the result (failed or successful), this temporary folder is deleted automatically after the execution is finished or terminated. The path to the temporary execution folder is determined automatically based on your operating system, or you can set it using the resource_flow_temp_folder parameter.

Resource parameters must follow the pattern resource_<parameterType>_<parameter_name>, all in lower case, where:
  • resource_ is the fixed prefix.

    If the prefix is not used, the resource parameter will appear in the Advanced parameters section instead of the Resource section in Talend Management Console.

  • <parameterType> is the name of the external resource.
  • <parameter_name> is the name of the resource parameter.

    Use underscores to separate words in the parameter name.

For further information, see Setting resource parameters.
