Installation and Upgrade

In order to link your existing Subversion or Git repository to the web application, you need to enter your SVN/Git credentials as well as the repository URL on the Configuration page.

Note that the only nodes that are relevant for you on this page are the following: Database (information about the database driver used for Talend Administration Center), General (information about the version of the web application), Software Update (credentials used to retrieve Talend patches and software updates), Git and/or SVN (credentials used to access the repository on which projects are created).

Procedure

  1. Open the Configuration page of Talend Administration Center.
  2. In the Software Update node, fill in the following parameters to connect to the Talend Artifact Repository that stores Talend software updates.

    The Talend Artifact Repository instance needs to be launched with the command nexus.bat consolenexus.sh console. If you installed Talend Artifact Repository as a service, run the start command to launch it.

    Talend update username and Talend update password Type in the credentials of the software update repository user that you received from Talend.
    Local repository url Type in the location URL to the repository where software updates are stored. By default, it is http://localhost:8081/nexus/.

    Local reader username and Local reader password Type in the credentials of the user with read rights to the local repository. By default, no credentials are required but you are free to define them if you want to disable public access to the repository.
    Local repository ID Type in the ID of the repository in which software updates are published. By default, it is talend-updates.
  3. In the SVN and Git nodes, fill in the SVN or Git parameters, depending on the server in which you will store the projects.
    Parameter Value
    Branches whitelist

    Select True or False in the list.

    This function allows you to filter the project on the defined branches or tags in order to reduce the use of disk resources and improve performances.

    Server location/Git server url Type in the location URL to your Subversion server repository.
    Username

    Type in the name of the Subversion or Git user.

    Note that the login and password must correspond to a user that has been previously created in SVN or Git.

    Password

    Type in the password of the Subversion or Git user.

    Note that the login and password must correspond to a user that has been previously created in SVN or Git.

    Commit Log Pattern

    Define the SVN or Git commit log pattern according to your log format convention.

    The log pattern will be automatically applied to all commit logs, except user logs if the corresponding log option is activated. Example: the pattern start {0} end will add the word start before the log message body and end after the log message body.

    The default pattern is {0}, namely no leading or trailing information is added to any log message.

Results

The link to the SVN or Git is now established, you can thus create a new project in order for the Talend clients to have at least one project in their workspace.
