Installation and Upgrade


  1. Install the Apache Tomcat application server and stop the Tomcat service if it is automatically started.
  2. Edit the /etc/default/tomcat8 file:
  3. Uncomment the tomcat security setting and change the default setting, in order to read:
  4. Unzip the package delivered by Talend:
    This will give you access to the different components needed to benefit from all the Talend Administration Center functionalities:
    • org.talend.administrator.war, the archive containing the actual Talend Administration Center Web application.

    •, the archive containing an artifact repository software, based on Sonatype Nexus, that will be used to handle software updates and DI artifacts . For more information, see Introduction to the Talend products.

  5. Copy the web application, org.talend.administrator.war, into the webapps directory of Tomcat.
    Once you have copied this war file, you can either unzip it manually under the same directory, or let Tomcat unzip the web application at startup.
  6. Start Tomcat using the following command:
    sh <TomcatPath>/bin/


Warning: The storage of log outputs is managed by Tomcat application server, by default, but you are also able to define your own path for storing the logs. From 4.0, you can configure the path directly from Talend Administration Center. For more information on manual configuration in prior versions, refer to Configuring the log storage mode.

If you wish to implement high availability to the task execution scheduling using Talend clustering feature, then read Installing Tomcat in cluster mode before starting Tomcat.

For reasons of right management, make sure you launch Tomcat using the same administrator account as for Talend CommandLine. For example: Create a talend_admin account for both Tomcat and Talend CommandLine.

If you deploy a large number of applications on Tomcat, you should increase its memory to improve its performance. For more information on this process, see Increasing the memory of Tomcat.

If you encounter performance issues during Tomcat startup, it may be due to the use of symbolic links during SVN checkout. For more information on how to solve these issues, see Talend Help Center .
