To avoid creating a DB connection from scratch, you can duplicate an existing one in the DB Connections list and work around its metadata to have a new connection.

Before you begin

A database connection is created in the Profiling perspective of Talend Studio. For further information, see Connecting to a database.


  1. In the DQ Repository tree view, expand Metadata > DB Connections.
  2. Right-click the connection you want to duplicate and select Duplicate from the contextual menu.


The duplicated database connection shows under the connection list in the DQ Repository tree view as a copy of the original connection. You can now open the duplicated connection and modify its metadata as needed.
