    • If you connect to a remote project hosted on Talend Cloud Management Console, your Studio is automatically connected to Talend Cloud using the credentials added for this project connection. For further information about how to connect to a remote project, see Accessing remote projects from Talend Studio.

      The cloud connection allows you to publish artifacts designed in Studio to Talend Cloud. Once the connection is established, any update in your scenario from Talend Studio can be pushed to the cloud right away.

    • If you connect to a local project, then you need to follow (Optional) Using the Preferences wizard to connect Talend Studio to Talend Cloud to connect to Talend Cloud.

You can now install features using the Feature Manager wizard if needed. For more information, see Installing features using the Feature Manager.

Talend Studio requires specific third-party Java libraries or database drivers (.jar files) to be able to connect to sources and targets. These libraries or drivers, known as external modules, are required by some Talend components and/or connection wizards. Due to license restrictions, Talend may not be able to ship certain external modules within Talend Studio. For more information, see Installing all external modules in one go.
