Set up a custom connection for an artifact that interacts with Amazon RDS for Oracle.

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

Note: The artifact published from Talend Studio must include connection_ parameters. Refer to the Talend Studio User Guide for more information.
