These properties are used to configure tCouchbaseInput running in the Standard Job framework.

The Standard tCouchbaseInput component belongs to the Databases NoSQL family.

The component in this framework is available in all Talend products with Big Data and in Talend Data Fabric.

Basic settings


Enter, within double quotation marks, the name of the data bucket in the Couchbase database.

If you are using Couchbase V5.0, this bucket name is the user name you have created in the Security tab of your Couchbase UI.

Since version 7.1, Couchbase V5.5 and V6.0 are supported.


Provide the authentication credentials to a bucket.

To enter the password, click the [...] button next to the password field, and then in the pop-up dialog box enter the password between double quotes and click OK to save the settings.

If you are using Couchbase V5.0, enter the same value you put in the Bucket field as password, because in Couchbase V5.0, no password is associated with a bucket. However, on Couchbase, you need to create a user with appropriate role to access the buckets.

For further information about the access control and other important requirements on the Couchbase V5.0 side, see Couchbase V5.0 release note: Major Behavior Changes.

Bootstrap nodes

Enter the name or IP of the node to be bootstrapped by Couchbase SDK. As Couchbase recommends to specify multiple nodes to bootstrap, enter the names or IPs of these nodes in this field, separating them using commas (,).

For further information about Couchbase bootstrapping, see How Couchbase SDKs connect to the cluster.

Schema and Edit Schema

A schema is a row description. It defines the number of fields (columns) to be processed and passed on to the next component. When you create a Spark Job, avoid the reserved word line when naming the fields.

The schema of this component is read-only. The content column stores the documents to be used, the key column the IDs of these documents and the other columns the Couchbase technical information.

Advanced settings

tStatCatcher Statistics

Select this check box to gather the Job processing metadata at the Job level as well as at each component level.

Global Variables

Global Variables

NB_LINE: the number of rows read by an input component or transferred to an output component. This is an After variable and it returns an integer.

ERROR_MESSAGE: the error message generated by the component when an error occurs. This is an After variable and it returns a string. This variable functions only if the Die on error check box is cleared, if the component has this check box.

A Flow variable functions during the execution of a component while an After variable functions after the execution of the component.

To fill up a field or expression with a variable, press Ctrl + Space to access the variable list and choose the variable to use from it.

For further information about variables, see Talend Studio User Guide.


Usage rule

As a start component, tCouchbaseInput reads the documents from the Couchbase database.
