Some generic parameters are filled in by default in the Configuration page. The following sections describe how to display those parameters and edit them if needed.

Checking general information about Talend Administration Center

To check the general information of Talend Administration Center, do the following:

  1. On the Menu tree view, click Configuration.

  2. Click the General group to display the parameters.

    The following parameters are read only:



    WebApp version

    Version number of Talend Administration Center

    Db model version

    Model version number of the Database that should match the version number of Talend Administration Center.


    Url of Talend Administration Center

Checking the database connection details

All data related to project information and administration: administration data, user declaration and authorization, task list, trigger list, etc. are stored in a database. By default, this database is an H2 embedded database. But you can choose to store those data in another compatible database system (MySQL, MS SQL and Oracle). For more information about those Talend Administration Center database management systems, see the Talend Installation Guide.

From Talend Administration Center, you can display the database connection settings and status. To do so, complete the following:

  1. On the Menu, click Configuration click the Database group to display the parameters.

    The following parameters are read only:




    Url of the database in which all Talend Administration Center information is stored


    Name of the administrator of the database


    Driver of the Talend Administration Center database.

    Web Console

    URL of the H2 Web console


    This field will not display if you choose to store the data in another database system than the default H2 one.

  2. If you want to access the projects and administration data via the default Web console provided, click the URL of the Web Console field.

    The following login page opens:

  3. In the Password field, type in the connection password to the database, by default tisadmin.

  4. Click Connect.

    A Web database administration page opens.

    If you choose another database system and find out that one of the parameters is wrongly set, you have to click the link Go to db config page from the Login page to access the Database configuration page that gives both database connection status and settings. This page is protected by a password, therefore you can click Cancel if you do not have this administrator password and want to go back to the Login page.

    For more information about logging in to Talend Administration Center, see Accessing the Administration Center.


    If the Go to db config page link on the Login page is hidden, you need to activate it from the file. For more information, see the Talend Installation Guide. Moreover, you can modify database connection information directly from the file.

    For more information on how to set, import or export database connection details, check the relevant section in the Talend Installation Guide.

Checking the configuration for audit

The parameters used for driving audit and storing audit data are set up automatically during the process of installation of your Administration Center. The Configuration page allows you to check this configuration and specify the directory where you need to store the audit reports.

  • In the Reports stored path field of the Audit area, type in the path pointing to the folder of interest for storing the audit reports.

    The other fields in this area present the connection parameters to the database, initially an H2 database named talend_audit, dedicated to storing audit data. With Talend Administration Center, you can manage this audit database the same way as you do to the database storing the data related to project information and administration. For further information about this way of management, see Checking the database connection details.

    When need be, you are able to create a custom audit database using the Audit page of Talend Administration Center. For further information, see Customizing audit database.
