Before you begin

Make sure the database you are using meet the requirements described in Compatible databases and the following ones.


  1. Log in to an existing database as a database superuser or a user who has CREATEROLE and CREATEDB privileges.
    $ psql <DATABASE_NAME>
  2. Create a user MM and a database MM with the following privileges.
    -- Delete previous user if needed
                            DROP USER "MM";
                            -- If the user cannot be dropped due to any ownership issues, you'll need to reassign those objects to another user
                            REASSIGN OWNED BY "MM" TO <OTHER-USER-NAME>;                         
                            -- Or drop those objects
                            DROP OWNED BY "MM";
                            -- Create a database MM with UTF8 encoding. You may use a different tablespace.
                            CREATE DATABASE MM;
                            -- Create a user MM with LOGIN privilege
                            CREATE ROLE MM WITH LOGIN PASSWORD 'MM123!';
                            -- Grant privileges on MM database to MM user
                            GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON DATABASE MM TO MM;
  3. For maintenance reasons, PostgreSQL database indexes can be rebuilt as follows.
    • Stop the Talend Data Catalog application server.
    • Run the following command under the MS-DOS command prompt assuming postgresql/bin is in the system path.
      reindexdb --username=MM --dbname=MM -v
    • Restart the Talend Data Catalog application server.
    For more information on reindexdb, refer to the PostgreSQL documentation.
