You can add new parameters to configure the use of a proxy server for Talend Data Preparation at the operating system level.

The use of a proxy server comes with the following limitations:

  • Aside from local files, you will only be able to create Database datasets.
  • The All data export option will only be available for local file formats, and not Amazon S3.
  • You have to use a SOCKS proxy, as shown in the following documentation.

Before you begin

The proxy configuration for Talend Data Preparation is available only if you have installed the TPS-5556 patch delivered by Talend.

Procedure

  1. In the /etc/environment file, add the following parameters, with the values corresponding to your proxy server:
    socksProxySet=true
    socksProxyHost=<proxy_server_IP>
    socksProxyPort=<proxy_server_port>
  2. In the start.sh file of the Talend Data Preparation installation folder, add the following parameters, with the values corresponding to your proxy server:
    -DsocksProxySet=true
    -DsocksProxyHost=<proxy_server_IP>
    -DsocksProxyPort=<proxy_server_port>
    -DsocksNonProxyHosts=<TDP_server_host>
  3. Restart the Talend Data Preparation server.

What to do next

If your proxy server is installed on a virtual machine or a different machine than the Talend Data Preparation server, you need to authorize communication between the proxy server and the Talend Data Preparation server.
