A new framework is available to build custom components and must be used from this version onwards. Refer to Developing a component using Component Kit .

When your studio is connected to SVN or Git, the Custom component node displays in the tree diagram to the left of the Project Settings dialog box, in favor of sharing the external user or custom component installed in your studio with the other users of the same project.


  1. On the toolbar of the Studio main window, click or click File > Edit Project Properties from the menu bar to open the Project Settings dialog box.
  2. In the tree view of the dialog box, click the Custom component node to open the corresponding view on the right of the dialog box. If you have already installed your user or custom component in your studio, these components display on the left part of the Custom component view.

    The custom components can be installed from the Preferences dialog box or imported from Talend exchange .

    For further information about how to install a user component from the Preferences dialog box, see How to define the user component folder (Talend > Components).

    For further information about how to import external custom components, see Downloading/uploading Talend Community components.

    One example is provided on Talend Help Center, which describes how to download a custom component from Talend Exchange and install it.

    For more information, see How to install and update a custom component .

  3. Click the custom or user component(s) of your interest to activate the button, and click this activated button to move the selected component(s) into the Shared Component view.

    To revoke this sharing, select the component(s) you want to stop sharing in the Shared Component view and click the button to move the selected component(s) into the Custom Components view.

  4. Click Apply to validate this move.
  5. Click Apply and Close to close the dialog box.
