MDM Platform

Before you begin

Make sure that the MDM server is up and running.


  1. From the Integration perspective, import your local and remote Jobs as described in Upgrading the Talend projects in Talend Studio.
  2. Deploy the Jobs to the new MDM server one by one. For more information, see Job Designs.


You can also copy and paste the Job scripts from their corresponding folder in the old application to the corresponding folder in the new application: <$INSTALLDIR>\jobox\deploy. However, this will not import the Job design that you may need at some point.

This copy and paste operation is recommended only between two MDM servers that have the same major version, that is, the first number of the unique identifier of the version. If the major versions differ, it is very likely that the MDM components will not work with the new MDM Server. If you are migrating between two identical versions or two versions where only the minor version differs, however, the copy and paste operation will be a lot faster than redeploying the Jobs.
Note: Since Talend 6.2.0, the search operator Strict contains is no longer available in the components tMDMInput, tMDMDelete, and tMDMViewSearch. If the Job you are migrating to a new 6.2.0 application involves any of the components tMDMInput, tMDMDelete, and tMDMViewSearch using the operator Strict contains, the search operator Contains will be used instead automatically.
