From Talend Studio you can export one or multiple data models in order to exchange them between two different MDM servers or repositories.

Before you begin

You have already connected to the MDM server from Talend Studio. At least one data model exists.

About this task

To export one or multiple data models:

Procedure

  1. In the MDM Repository tree view, right-click the Data Model node and select Export Items from the contextual menu.
    The Export Repository items dialog box appears and the Data Model check box is selected by default.
    Note: If you want to export all items in the repository and not only data models, click the Select All button to select the check boxes of all items in the list.
  2. To export the selected data models in a folder, select the Select root directory option and click the three-dot button next to the option.
    A dialog box appears.
  3. Browse to where you want to save the data model and click OK to close the dialog box.
    The path to the target folder is set in the field next to the selected option.
  4. Click the Add Dependencies button to add dependencies for the selected item or items.
    You can click the Add Dependencies button for multiple times until all item dependencies are added or click the Add All Dependencies button to add all item dependencies in one go.
    For more information about item dependencies, see Managing item dependencies in the MDM Repository.
  5. In the Export items dialog box, click Finish to validate your changes and close the dialog box.
    A folder holding all data models in the current MDM Repository is created in the specified path. An XML file that lists all exported elements is also created.
  6. To export the selected data models in a zip file, select the Select archive file option in the Export Items dialog box and then click the three-dot button next to the option.
    A dialog box appears.
  7. Browse to where you want to save the data model archive file.
  8. In the File Name field, enter a name for the archive file and then click Open to close the dialog box.
    The path to the target archive file is set in the field next to the selected option.
  9. In the Export items dialog box, click Finish to validate your changes and close the dialog box.
    An archive file holding all data models in the current MDM Repository is created in the specified path. An XML file that lists all exported elements is also created.
    Note: If you want to export only one data model of all those in the MDM Repository, expand Data Model in the Export items dialog box and then select the check box next to the name of the data model you want to export and proceed as usual.
