The availability of Talend Dictionary Service depends on the license you have.

Talend Dictionary Service stores the semantic types used in various Talend products including the Talend Data Preparation and Talend Data Stewardship Web applications.

You can enrich these semantic types with your personal categories, and all the changes you make are instantly available in your Web applications.

You can go further and create your own semantic types, as well as updating or deleting the existing ones.

In Talend Dictionary Service, the semantic types are divided into three main categories:
  • The Dictionary type, based on an open or closed list of values.
  • The Regular expression type that compares your data against a preselected regular expression.
  • The Compound type, under which you can group several existing types.
