After the installation of Nexus, you can use the Talend Cloud Zip file to configure your instance.


  1. Log in to Talend Cloud.
  2. Under your profile name, select Downloads.
  3. Scroll down to Continuous Integration for Cloud (CI).
  4. Select Archive Talend Artifact Repository and click Download.
  5. Unzip the file in a dedicated folder. It contains one migration folder that contains the migration script and a .properties file.
  6. Open the migration-A.B.C\ file and check the URL, port, and login connection information. If needed, update them and save your changes.
  7. Launch Nexus.
  8. Access the Sonatype Nexus Repository Web application URL as defined in the file and log in.
    After the first connection, it is strongly recommended to change the default credentials of the default administrator account.
  9. Browse to the migration-A.B.C folder and execute the following command: java -jar <nexus-init-A.B.C.jar>, where <nexus-init-A.B.C.jar> is the name of the .jar file that is in the migration-A.B.C folder.
    For example:
    • java -jar nexus-init-8.0.1.jar for the 8.0.1 version.
    • java -jar nexus-migration-7.3.1.jar for the 7.3.1 version.
  10. Refresh the Nexus website.

  • talend-custom-libs-release-read-only
