You can export regular expressions or SQL patterns from your current version of Studio to Talend Exchange where you can share them with other users. The exported patterns are saved as .xmi files on the exchange server.

Patterns will be exported with the exact path they have in the initial repository. When users import them from Talend Exchange into the repository of their Talend Studio, these patterns will be imported under the same folder or subfolders they had in the initial repository.

About this task

The below procedure uses regular expressions as an example. You can follow the same steps to export SQL patterns.


  1. In the DQ Repository tree view, expand Libraries > Patterns.
  2. Right-click Regex and select Export for Talend Exchange .

    The Export for Talend Exchange wizard is displayed.

  3. Browse to the folder where to save the regular expressions.
  4. Click Select All to select all the regular expressions in the list or select the check boxes of the regular expressions you want to export to the specified folder.
    Select the Browse check box to list only the patterns you want to export.
  5. Click Finish.
    The .xmi file of each selected pattern is saved as a zip file in the defined folder.
  6. Upload the zip files to Talend Exchange at https://exchange.talend.com/.
    To do this, an account on the Talend Exchange server is required.
    Note: When users import these .xmi files from Talend Exchange into the repository of their Talend Studio, the patterns are imported under the same family subfolder, and thus have the path they had in the initial repository.
