You can either permanently delete data records from the selected entity or erase them from the data record list so that you can recover them at a later date.

Before you begin

  • The MDM server is already launched.
  • You have been assigned a role with the appropriate user authorization and access rights.
  • At least one view has been created in Talend Studio. For more information, see Creating a View.
  • Make sure you have selected the data container that holds the master data you want to manage and the data model against which the master data will be validated.


  1. In the Master Data Browser page, search for the data records pertaining to the entity of interest.
    All searched data records are listed in this page.
  2. Select the check box next to the data record you want to delete.


  3. Click the button and then select Delete to permanently delete the data record(s).

    A Confirmation dialog box opens.

    Warning: The Delete button removes data permanently. In case of doubt, you can use the Send to Trash option to erase the data record(s) from the record list. If required, you can recover the erased data record(s) from the Recycle Bin later.
  4. Click Yes to confirm the deletion and close the message.
    The selected master data record is deleted from the list and from the repository.
