tMysqlSP Properties

Component family




tMysqlSP calls the database stored procedure.


tMysqlSP offers a convenient way to centralize multiple or complex queries in a database and call them easily.

Basic settings

Property type

Either Built-in or Repository.

Since version 5.6, both the Built-In mode and the Repository mode are available in any of the Talend solutions.



Built-in: No property data stored centrally.



Repository: Select the repository file in which the properties are stored. The fields that follow are completed automatically using the data retrieved.



Database server IP address



Listening port number of DB server.



Name of the database


Username and Password

DB user authentication data.

To enter the password, click the [...] button next to the password field, and then in the pop-up dialog box enter the password between double quotes and click OK to save the settings.


Schema and Edit Schema

A schema is a row description. It defines the number of fields (columns) to be processed and passed on to the next component. The schema is either Built-In or stored remotely in the Repository.

Since version 5.6, both the Built-In mode and the Repository mode are available in any of the Talend solutions.



Built-In: You create and store the schema locally for this component only. Related topic: see Talend Studio User Guide.



Repository: You have already created the schema and stored it in the Repository. You can reuse it in various projects and Job designs. Related topic: see Talend Studio User Guide.


Click Edit schema to make changes to the schema. If the current schema is of the Repository type, three options are available:

  • View schema: choose this option to view the schema only.

  • Change to built-in property: choose this option to change the schema to Built-in for local changes.

  • Update repository connection: choose this option to change the schema stored in the repository and decide whether to propagate the changes to all the Jobs upon completion. If you just want to propagate the changes to the current Job, you can select No upon completion and choose this schema metadata again in the [Repository Content] window.


SP Name

Type in the exact name of the Stored Procedure


Is Function / Return result in

Select this check box, if a value only is to be returned.

Select on the list the schema column, the value to be returned is based on.



Click the Plus button and select the various Schema Columns that will be required by the procedures. Note that the SP schema can hold more columns than there are paramaters used in the procedure.

Select the Type of parameter:

IN: Input parameter.

OUT: Output parameter/return value.

IN OUT: Input parameters is to be returned as value, likely after modification through the procedure (function).

RECORDSET: Input parameters is to be returned as a set of values, rather than single value.


Check Scenario 1: Inserting data in mother/daughter tables if you want to analyze a set of records from a database table or DB query and return single records.

Dynamic settings

Click the [+] button to add a row in the table and fill the Code field with a context variable to choose your database connection dynamically from multiple connections planned in your Job. This feature is useful when you need to access database tables having the same data structure but in different databases, especially when you are working in an environment where you cannot change your Job settings, for example, when your Job has to be deployed and executed independent of Talend Studio.

The Dynamic settings table is available only when the Use an existing connection check box is selected in the Basic settings view. Once a dynamic parameter is defined, the Component List box in the Basic settings view becomes unusable.

For examples on using dynamic parameters, see Scenario 3: Reading data from MySQL databases through context-based dynamic connections and Scenario: Reading data from different MySQL databases using dynamically loaded connection parameters. For more information on Dynamic settings and context variables, see Talend Studio User Guide.


This component is used as intermediary component. It can be used as start component but only input parameters are thus allowed.


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


The Stored Procedures syntax should match the Database syntax.

Scenario: Finding a State Label using a stored procedure

The following job aims at finding the State labels matching the odd State IDs in a Mysql two-column table. A stored procedure is used to carry out this operation.

  • Drag and drop the following components used in this example: tRowGenerator, tMysqlSP, tLogRow.

  • Connect the components using the Row Main link.

  • The tRowGenerator is used to generate the odd id number. Double-click on the component to launch the editor.

  • Click on the Plus button to add a column to the schema to generate.

  • Select the Key check box and define the Type to Int.

  • The Length equals to 2 digits max.

  • Use the preset function called sequence but customize the Parameters in the lower part of the window.

  • Change the Value of step from 1 to 2 for this example, still starting from 1.

  • Set the Number of generated rows to 25 in order for all the odd State id (of 50 states) to be generated.

  • Click OK to validate the configuration.

  • Then select the tMysqlSP component and define its properties.

  • Set the Property type field to Repository and select the relevant entry on the list. The connection details get filled in automatically.

  • Else, set manually the connection information.

  • Click Sync Column to retrieve the generated schema from the preceding component.

  • Then click Edit Schema and add an extra column to hold the State Label to be output, in addition to the ID.

  • Type in the name of the procedure in the SP Name field as it is called in the Database. In this example, getstate. The procedure to be executed states as follows:

    IF EXISTS `talend`.`getstate` $$
    CREATE DEFINER=`root`@`localhost` PROCEDURE `getstate`(IN pid INT, OUT
    pstate VARCHAR(50))
    SELECT LabelState INTO pstate FROM us_states WHERE idState = pid;
    END $$

  • In the Parameters area, click the plus button to add a line to the table.

  • Set the Column field to ID, and the Type field to IN as it will be given as input parameter to the procedure.

  • Add a second line and set the Column field to State and the Type to Out as this is the output parameter to be returned.

  • Eventually, set the tLogRow component properties.

  • Synchronize the schema with the preceding component.

  • And select the Print values in cells of a table check box for reading convenience.

  • Then save your Job and execute it.

The output shows the state labels corresponding to the odd state ids as defined in the procedure.
