From Talend Studio, you can define the rules that master data has to follow.

A typical sequence of setting governance rules in Talend Studio involves the following steps:

  1. Create a data model containing one or multiple business entities. A business entity can be a supplier, a country, a customer, etc. For more information, see Setting up a data model.

  2. Define the corresponding data container for the data model in the MDM Hub where the master data is to be persist. For more information, see Creating a data container.

  3. Design one or more Processes that perform transformations, data validation and other tasks. Processes usually call a sequence of available plug-ins to project data from the source system to a defined data container (MDM Hub). During projection, the data is transformed, cross-referenced if needed and validated against the entity model. For more information on Processes, see How to create a Process from scratch.

  4. Design one or more Triggers, rules for transforming data, that enable the event-based Processes to be undertaken on specific data records. For more information, see Creating a Trigger.

After projection, the MDM Hub holds valid data (model compliant data) that a data steward or a business user can query and/or extract via Talend MDM Web User Interface. For more information, see the Talend MDM Web User Interface User Guide.

Before a given business user is able to extract and query valid master data via the web-based User Interface, you need to create one or more Views in Talend Studio that specify:

  • which records of an entity a business user has the right to search,

  • which records of an entity a business user has the right to view,

  • optionally which conditions should the content meet to be delivered as the result of a search (content filters).

For more information on Views, see Creating a View.
