Before you begin

  • You must have the Manage permission enabled for the workspace where the connection is stored.
  • Ensure that the connection to be matched in Studio does not use \ in its parameter values. When a connection needs to use \ to be interpreted as a special character, such as in \t, use \\ instead in both Studio and Talend Cloud Management Console.

About this task

After clicking while creating or editing a task, the Add New Connection wizard opens. You can create a connection based on the parameters defined in the artifact that is used in the task.


  1. In the Add new connection wizard, select the workspace in which to create the connection.
    The current workspace is selected by default.
  2. The connection type (Application) and Application name cannot be changed.
  3. Enter a name for the connection.
    Note: You cannot create two connections with the same name.
  4. Edit the parameter values if needed.
    It is not possible to edit the parameter keys, or add/remove parameters.
  5. Click Save.


When the connection is created, you are redirected to the create/edit task wizard.
