From MANAGE > Email, you set up the parameters of the email system which sends the notifications.

Talend Cloud Data Catalog supports SSL/TLS for email servers. The server detects SSL/TLS automatically and you do not need to explicitly request it.

Before you begin

  • You have been assigned a global role with the Application Administration capability.
  • Your email server provides SMTP access.


  1. Go to MANAGE > Email.
  2. Enable the SMTP.
  3. In SMTP settings, fill in the following parameters.
    Field Description
    Host Name Type in the IP address of your mail server.
    Port Type in the port of your mail server.
    User Name Type in the email address used when connecting to the SMTP server.
    Password Type in the password used when connecting to the SMTP server.
    Sender Address Type in the email address that will be displayed as the sender information in the emails received by the recipients.
    Reply to address Type in the email address that will displayed as the reply-to address in the emails. By default, it is the same as the sender address.
    External URL Enter a link that points to the Talend Cloud Data Catalog server, for example http://localhost:11480/MM. The recipients can open the link from the emails.

    To have the server name instead of localhost in the URL for the glossary notifications, you can replace the M_SERVER_FQDN=localhost parameter with M_SERVER_FQDN=server_name in the tomcat/conf/ file.

  4. Click the Send Test Email button.
  5. Type in the recipient and click Send.
    • An alert message displays when the test message has been sent successfully.
    • An error message displays when the test message has been failed. Click Show Details for more information.
  6. Click OK.
  7. In Notification settings, click Yes to enable the notifications for watchers.
  8. In Batch time, specify the time that the notifications will cover.
  9. Click Save.
