Both tDie and tWarn components are closely related to the tLogCatcher component.They generally make sense when used alongside a tLogCatcher in order for the log data collected to be encapsulated and passed on to the output defined.

Component family

Logs & Errors



This component throws an error and kills the job. If you simply want to throw a warning, see tWarn.


Triggers the tLogCatcher component for exhaustive log before killing the Job.

Basic settings

Die message

Enter the message to be displayed before the Job is killed.


Error code

Enter the error code if need be, as an integer.


Note that any value greater than 255 can not be used as an error code on Linux.



Set the level of priority, as an integer

Global Variables

DIE_MESSAGES: the die message. This is an After variable and it returns a string.

DIE_CODE: the error code of the die message. This is an After variable and it returns an integer.

DIE_PRIORITY: the priority level of the die message. This is an After variable and it returns an integer.

ERROR_MESSAGE: the error message generated by the component when an error occurs. This is an After variable and it returns a string. This variable functions only if the Die on error check box is cleared, if the component has this check box.

A Flow variable functions during the execution of a component while an After variable functions after the execution of the component.

To fill up a field or expression with a variable, press Ctrl + Space to access the variable list and choose the variable to use from it.

For further information about variables, see Talend Studio User Guide.


This component cannot be used as a start component and it is generally used with a tLogCatcher for the log purpose.


If you are using a subscription-based version of the Studio, the activity of this component can be logged using the log4j feature. For more information on this feature, see Talend Studio User Guide.

For more information on the log4j logging levels, see the Apache documentation at
