Testing a Process in Talend Studio

After creating your Process in Talend Studio, this Process is usually called by Talend MDM web service. However, it is possible to run the Process from within Talend Studio itself.

Before you begin

You have already connected to the MDM server from Talend Studio. At least one Process exists.


  1. In the MDM Repository tree view, expand the Event Management and Process nodes and then double-click the Process you want to execute in order to open the corresponding editor.
  2. Double-click the Process you want to test and then click the icon in the upper right corner of the process editor.
    A dialog box opens.
  3. From the Input Variables list, select _DEFAULT_ and select text/xml from the Content Type list.
  4. Click the Pick a record from a container button to select the desired record from a container. For more information, see Selecting a record from a container when testing a Process.
  5. Click OK to run the Process.
    A progress information bar is shown and then a result dialog box opens. If the results are HTML, for example if you are testing a Smart View Process, you have the option of clicking the Display In Browser button to view the results in your default Web browser.

What to do next

This result will show that your Process works correctly. What you must do now is to define a Trigger in order to call the process from that Trigger. For further information, see Creating a Trigger.
