This section shows how to install features using the Feature Manager.

Pay attention to the following before installing features to Talend Studio:

  • An installed feature must be active if you want to use it in your project. You can activate or deactivate any installed feature in any project and on any branch. For more information, see Activating/Deactivating installed features.
  • For a local project, after a feature is installed, by default, it is active only in the current project.
  • For a remote project, after a feature is installed, by default, it is active only in the current project on the current branch. When switching between branches, if active features are different between current branch and target branch, Talend Studio will be restarted.
  • For a newly created project, all features already installed are active by default.
  • For a migrated or imported project, Talend Studio installs and activates the required features automatically.
  • The feature packages are, by default, downloaded from Talend official site. You can configure the URL of the repository for Talend Studio feature packages. For more information, see Configuring update repositories.

Procedure

  1. Launch your Talend Studio and log into the project in which you want to install and activate the features.
  2. Click the Feature Manager button on the top bar or select Help > Feature Manager from the menu.
    The Feature Manager wizard opens and displays a hierarchical view of all features that are available and not yet installed based on the license you are using and the type of the project you are working with. The features are organized by categories.
    Note:

    If Talend Studio detects an update, the Feature Manager will open and display the update installation wizard first. You need to install the update and restart Talend Studio before installing features.

    If you have installed the 8.0 R2022-05 Studio monthly update or a later one provided by Talend, and if the Talend Studio update settings are managed by your administrator from Talend Cloud Management Console, a message is displayed in the update installation wizard to inform you that the update has been approved in Talend Cloud Management Console by your administrator.

    You can click Go to project settings to open the Activate/Deactivate features view in the Project Settings dialog box, where you can activate or deactivate any feature already installed in your current project.

    You can also click Go to libraries to open the Third-party Libraries wizard, where you can install all third-party libraries in one go.

  3. Select the check boxes corresponding to the features you want to install.
    You can click the name of the corresponding feature to display its details.
  4. Click Next.
    A summary of all features you have selected and their dependencies are listed and can be reviewed.

    The required disk space for installing the selected features and their dependencies is displayed under the list. Make sure there is enough space available on the disk to complete this operation.

  5. Click Next.
    The Review license agreements view displays.
  6. Review all the license text and select I agree to all listed terms and conditions.
  7. Click Install.
    When the installation is complete:
    • Click Yes, restart to restart your Talend Studio to make the installed features available in the current project.
    • Click Not now if you prefer not to restart right away. The installed features will be available next time you log into the project.
