In order not to set your search criteria over and over again when you are browsing data records in a specific entity, Talend MDM Web User Interface enables you to save your search criteria for later use.


-The MDM server is already launched.

-You have been assigned a role with the appropriate user authorization and access rights. For further information, see Security.

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


Make sure that you have selected:

-the data container that holds the master data you want to manage,

-the data model against which the master data will be validated.

For further information, see Accessing data containers and data models.

To save your search criteria, complete the following:

  1. Follow the steps outlined in How to search entities in the selected data container or How to use the advanced search capabilities to list the data records according to a specific search criteria.

  2. Click the icon in the upper right corner of the page to open a dialog box.

  3. Select the Shared check box if you want to share this bookmark with other business users.

  4. In the Bookmark Name field, enter a name for your search criteria and then click OK to close the dialog box.

    A confirmation message pops up.

  5. Click OK to close the message.

    The current search criteria name is listed in a search bookmark list.

To reuse a search criteria you already defined, complete the following:

  1. Click the icon in the upper right corner of the page to open the search bookmark list.


    This list includes all search bookmarks created by different business users.

  2. Select from the list the search bookmark according to which you want to display data records and then click .

    The number of the records displayed in the page depends on what you have already defined in the Lines/page box in a previous search. Change the number in the box according to your needs and then reselect your search criteria to display the desired numbers of records. This number will be retained every time you try to browse data records in the repository (MDM hub).


If you select a search bookmark related to a view for which you do not have access because it is not associated with your role, an error message will be displayed.

In the search bookmark list:



open a dialog box where you can edit the search bookmark

delete the search bookmark

search the data records according to the search criteria set in the selected bookmark
