Get the Remote Engine key, a pre-authorization key to be used for pairing, and open a dedicated web service to pair your engines.

This section applies on the following situations:
  • You did not provide the pairing key when installing your engine, so you need to manually get the key to pair your engine with its logical entity in Talend Management Console.
  • You need to re-install your engine.
  • You have run into connection issues between the logical entity in Talend Management Console and the physical entities of the engine.
If you have installed an engine using the installer and already defined the Remote Engine key during the installation process, this pairing is already set up. You can ignore this section.

Before you begin

  • You have installed the Remote Engine.
  • You have created a Remote Engine logical entity in Talend Management Console.


  1. Launch the Talend Remote Engine console on your machine (trun ).
  2. Open Talend Management Console.
  3. Open the Processing page then click the Engines tab.
  4. Select the environment of the engine from the Environment drop-down-list.
    You can also use the search box and the filter options to filter the list.
  5. On the engine list, click the remote engine for which you want to reset the pairing.
  6. In the Engine details blade that is displayed, click the Manage tab.
  7. Copy the pairing key.
    The Manage tab displays different information depending on the pairing status of the engine.
    • If the engine is unpaired, copy the key from the Remote Engine key field.

    • If the engine has been paired, but you need to reset the key to pair the engine again for a re-installation or repairing connection issues, do the following:
      1. In the Reset the connection section, click Reset the key to open the corresponding wizard.

      3. In the second window, copy the new pairing key.

        This pairing key, also referred to as preauthorized key, pre-authorized or pre-authorization key, is used in your Remote Engine configuration to set up the connection to that engine.

  8. Launch http://localhost:8043/configuration.
  9. Paste the key in the corresponding field.
  10. Click Pair Remote Engine.
  11. Type list then press Enter .
    All bundles are in Active status.


Your remote engine has been paired with your account and the status moved to Paired on Talend Management Console.

To run tasks with the Remote Engine as the execution runtime, ensure that you have the Execute right on the workspace where the engine is located.
