Talend Cloud

In the Summer ’18 release, improvements have been made to Identity and Access Management (IAM), including the introduction of single sign-on OKTA support and enhancements to the SCIM (System for Cross-domain Identity Management) service. You can configure the single sign-on feature in Talend Cloud Management Console.

Continuous Integration and Deployment (CI/CD) for Cloud is also added to the Summer '18 release through the delivery of the Talend Cloud Publisher maven plugin that allows you to publish your artifacts to Talend Integration Cloud via a Continuous Integration server like Jenkins. For more information, see Talend Software Development Life Cycle for Cloud - Best Practices Guide.
