Component family




The tMarketoOutput component outputs data to a Marketo Web server.


The tMarketoOutput component allows you to write data into a Marketo DB on a Web server.

Basic 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.

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.

Click Sync columns to retrieve the schema from the previous component connected in the Job.



Built-in: No property data is stored centrally.



Repository: Select the Repository file where Properties are stored.


API Mode

Select the Marketo API mode, either SOAP API or REST API.

For more information about Marketo SOAP API, see

For more information about Marketo REST API, see


Endpoint address

The URL of the Marketo Web server for the SOAP API calls to.


Secret key

Encrypted authentication code assigned by Marketo.

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


Contact Marketo Support via to get this information.


Client Access ID

A user ID for the access to Marketo web service.

Select an operation that allows you to synchronize lead data between Marketo and another external system.

The operation supported in both the SOAP API mode and the REST API mode:

  • syncLead: requests an insert or update operation for a lead record.

  • syncMultipleLeads: requests an insert or update operation for multiple lead records in batch.

The operation supported only in the REST API mode:

  • createOnly: creates new leads within Marketo.

  • updateOnly: updates existing leads in Marketo.

  • createOrUpdate: creates new leads within Marketo, or updates the leads if they already exist.

  • createDuplicate: creates new leads within Marketo. If they already exist, then creates duplicated leads.


Columns Mapping

Specify the corresponding columns in Marketo for the columns listed in the Column fields. By default, column names in the Column fields are the same as in the schema. You can change the mapping columns by editing the schema.

This table is available only in the SOAP API mode.

Note that the following two columns are read-only and you cannot map them to Marketo columns:

  • Status: the execution status of the current operation for the data record.

  • ERROR_MSG: the error message generated when an error occurs.


Because some column names in the Marketo database may contain white space, which is not allowed in the component schema, you need to specify the corresponding column fields in the Columns in Marketo field. There is no need to map those schema columns which have the same name as in the Marketo database.


De-duplicate lead record on email address

Select this check box to de-duplicate and update lead records using email address.

Clear this check box to create another lead which contains the same email address.

This check box is available only when syncMultipleLeads is selected from the Operation list in the SOAP API mode.


LookupField name

Select the name of the lookupField attribute that will be used to find the duplicate.

This list is available only in the REST API mode.


Batch Size

The maximum batch size in synchronizing lead data in batch.


This field will be displayed only when you select syncMultipleLeads from the Operation list.


Timeout (milliseconds)

Type in the query timeout (in milliseconds) on the Marketo Web service.


The Job will stop when Timeout exception error occurs.


Die on error

This check box is selected by default. Clear the check box to skip the row on error and complete the process for error-free rows. If needed, you can retrieve the rows on error via a Row > Reject connection.

Advanced settings

tStatCatcher Statistics

Select this check box to gather the Job processing metadata at a Job level as well as at each component level.

Global Variables

NB_CALL: the number of calls. 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 is used as an output component, it requires an input component.
