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.
-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.
