Data Fabric

MDM Platform

In a data container, you can create as many new data records as needed for one or more entities.

Before you begin

You have already connected to the MDM server from Talend Studio. A data container exists and is defined with at least one entity.

About this task

To create a new data record from a data container, do the following:


  1. In the MDM Repository tree view, expand the Data Container node.
  2. Double-click the data container in which you want to create a new data record.
  3. A dialog box opens, asking you to select an appropriate MDM server.
    Once you have made your choice, click OK to close the dialog box.
  4. Right-click the lower part of the data container browser, and then click New Record.
  5. An XML Editor/Viewer dialog box opens, allowing you to add a new data record with an XML editor.
    After the editing is done, you can click the Tree tab to check the data record in a tree view.
  6. If needed, select the Fire a change event (update report) and triggers check box so that the newly created record will be written into the UpdateReport and eligible Triggers will be executed directly.

    After selecting the Fire a change event (update report) and triggers check box, if required, select the Enable verification by before processes check box to enable the verification of the newly created record by the Before Saving processes. For more information about Process types, see Process types.

    Note: The insert operation will fail, without any indication, if the Enable verification by before processes check box is selected and the validation of the data record is not successful.
  7. Select an appropriate data model from the Data Model list.
  8. Click Save to validate your changes.


The newly added data record will be displayed in the lower part of the data container browser.
