  1. Right-click the Contexts node in the Repository tree view and select Create context group from the contextual menu.
    A 2-step wizard appears to help you define the various contexts and context parameters.
  2. In Step 1 of 2, type in a name for the context group to be created, TalendDB in this example, and add any general information such as a description if required. The information you provide in the Description field will appear as a tooltip when you move your mouse over the context group in the Repository.
  3. Click Next to go to Step 2 of 2, which allows you to define the various contexts and variables that you need.
    A context named Default has been created and set as the default one by the system.
  4. Click the [+] button at the upper right corner of the wizard to define contexts. The Configure Contexts dialog box pops up.
  5. Select the context Default, click the Edit... button and enter Prod in the Rename Context dialog box that opens to rename the context Default to Prod.
    Then click OK to close the dialog box.
  6. Click the New... button and enter Test in the New Context dialog box. Then click OK to close the dialog box.
  7. Select the check box preceding the context you want to set as the default context. You can also set the default context by selecting the context name from the Default context environment list on the wizard.
    If needed, move a context up or down by selecting it and clicking the Up or Down button.
    In this example, set Test as the default context and move it up.
  8. Click OK to validate your context definition and close the Configure Contexts dialog box.
    The newly created contexts are shown in the context variables table of the wizard.
