If a Standalone Process is created in Talend Studio, it is automatically listed in the [Welcome] page in Talend MDM Web User Interface.

Such a process is not linked to a specific entity and can be designed to do different tasks on master data, for example adding a new record/entity in the repository, launching a workflow to do certain modifications on master data, launching a job to do some check or transformation on master data, or launch a job to return a specific result in a new tab in the web interface.

Prerequisite(s):

-The MDM server is already launched.

-You have been assigned a role with the appropriate user authorization and access rights to Processes. For further information, see Getting Started with Talend MDM Web User Interface.

-At least one Standalone Process has been created in Talend Studio. For further information, see the Talend Studio User Guide.

To execute a Standalone Process from the web interface, complete the following:

  1. Log in to Talend MDM Web User Interface to display the [Welcome] page.

  2. In the Processes panel, click the button that corresponds to the Standalone Process you want to execute, LaunchJob in this example.

    This LaunchJob Standalone Process calls a Job which passes to the Process output variable the URL of a PDF you want to display in a new tab in the Web User Interface. You can then save or print the returned result.

For further information on how to define such a Standalone Processes, see the Talend Studio User Guide.
