Talend provides you with a data quality demo project, Data Quality Demos, that includes numerous samples of profiling analyses and ready-to-use data quality Jobs. This demo project helps you discover most features of profiling data in the studio.

You can import the demo project either from the login window of your studio as a separate project, or from the icon in the Integration perspective.

When you import the demo project:

  • the demo folder is imported in the workspace directory of the current studio.

  • data quality Jobs are imported in the Repository tree view of the Integration perspective. These Jobs use different data quality components to standardize, deduplicate and match data for example.

    You can run most of these Jobs without any prerequisites. However, for few Jobs, you must install locally the databases, tbi, tutorials, cif and crm, and some files. Open any data quality tutorial at http://talendforge.org/tutorials/menu.php and you will find the TDQtutorialProject.zip and exampleFile.zip files that hold the databases you need to restore in your Mysql and the files you need to download.

    For other Jobs you must set the correct credentials to access the master data management server that holds the data stewardship console.

    Note

    As some of the demo Jobs are shared with the data quality Tutorials, they may have A, B, C, etc. or 1, 2, 3, etc. that precede their names. You must run these Jobs in the specified order.

  • profiling analyses are imported in the DQ Repository tree view of the Profiling perspective. These analyses run on the databases and files you installed initially as pointed out by the data quality tutorials.

To import the data quality demo project as a separate project in the studio, do the following:

  1. From the Action list on the login window of the studio, select Import demo project and then click Go.

    The [Import demo project] dialog box opens.

  2. Select the Data Quality Demos demo project, and then click Finish.

  3. In the dialog box that opens, type in a name for the demo project you want to import and click Finish.

    A bar is displayed to show the progress of the operation.

  4. On the login window, select from the Project list the data quality demo project you imported and then click Open.

    A bar is displayed indicating the progress of the process of launching the studio.

  5. Click Start now in the new window.

    After the studio engine initialization is complete, you can switch between the Profiling and the Integration perspectives and use the profiling analyses and the data quality Jobs respectively.

To import the data quality demo project into an open project in the studio, do the following:

  1. In the Integration perspective, click the icon on the toolbar.

    The [Import demo project] dialog box opens.

  2. Select the Data Quality Demos demo project, and then click Finish.

    A bar is displayed to show the progress of the operation and then a confirmation message opens.

  3. Click OK to close the message.

    Data quality demo items (Jobs, analyses, patterns, rules, etc.) are imported into the current project in the studio.
