Add a preparation to start preparing and cleansing your data. You can create a preparation from your available datasets.

Warning: Hierarchical type datasets are not supported by Talend Cloud Data Preparation, so you will not be able to create preparations from them.


To create a new preparation, you have two options:
  • From the dataset list, point your mouse over the dataset you want to use as source material for a preparation, click the Talend Cloud Data Preparation icon and select Add to directly start working on this data.

    Existing preparations that have been created from this dataset will be listed with their creator.

  • From the preparations list, click the Add preparation button. In the form that opens, give a name to your preparation, select the source dataset that has been created beforehand and click Submit.

    You can browse your existing datasets via a basic search, as well as filters on the certified or favorite datasets.


The preparation directly opens with an empty recipe, and you can start performing preparation operations. The preparation will be created in the folder in which you are currently working. Furthermore, your preparation will automatically be saved in the preparations list, and all the changes you make when preparing data are also saved automatically.
