Talend Data Stewardship Console enables you to create tasks manually from the stewardship console. These tasks are mainly for testing and debugging purposes.

Prerequisite(s): You have logged in to Talend Data Stewardship Console as an administrator.

To create a data resolution or a data integrity task, complete the following:

  1. In the Task Navigator panel, expand the Administration node and select Create Task.

    The [Task Schema Creation] dialog box pops up.

  2. In the Task Name field, enter a name for the task you want to create.

    From the Task Type list, select a type for the task you want to create, Resolution or Data.

    In the Default Source Name field, enter a name for the first data source.

    Click the Add button in the lower left corner of the dialog box.

    A line is added in the Task Schema Data list.

  3. In the Field Name field, enter a name for the first data column.

    Click in the Field Type and select from the list a type for the column.

    Select the isKey check box if you want to define the corresponding column as a key column.

    Click Save to save your changes.

  4. Repeat the above steps to create as many data columns as needed.

    Click OK to close the dialog box and open the Task Schema Edit View.

  5. Click in the source fields and fill in the required data.

    If required, click in the Name and Value fields in the lower half of the view and add any additional information on the source you have defined.

    This information will be attached to the task to help the data steward in taking a more informed decision when resolving the task. The data steward can display this information if he/she places the pointer on the corresponding column in the task detail view. For further information, see Resolving data conflicts and data problems.

  6. Put the pointer on the source column and click the arrow to open a contextual menu.

  7. Select Insert new source after to open a dialog box where you can enter a name for the second data source and then click OK to close the dialog box.

    A typical schema is added for the second data source.

  8. Click in the fields and fill in data as desired.

    Repeat the steps to add as many data sources as desired and then click Save on the menu bar.

    A message pops up to confirm that the new task is successfully stored in the stewardship console database.


    You can delete any of the data sources if you put your pointer on the source name, click the arrow and select delete from the contextual menu.

  9. Click OK to close the message.

    The newly created task is listed in the task list.

    If required, select New Tasks in the Task Navigator panel and double click the task in the task list to open its details.
