Install Talend Repository Manager with its default configuration using RPM.

Before you begin

  • Talend Repository Manager requires Java 8. You can use either Oracle Java or OpenJDK.
  • Make sure that the JAVA_HOME variable is correctly set to the Java home directory. For example: /usr/java/jdk1.8.0_181-amd64.
    Tip: You can set it in the /root/.bashrc file by adding the following line to it: export JAVA_HOME=$(dirname $(dirname $(readlink -e /usr/bin/java))).
  • Make sure that Tomcat is already installed. You can either install the talend-tomcat RPM or use your own installation of Tomcat. In the latter case, make sure that the Tomcat path is correctly set in your environment variables, as explained in Talend Repository Manager RPM configuration parameters.
  • Talend Repository Manager requires a MySQL, Oracle, or Microsoft SQL server database. Refer to Deploying Talend Repository Manager on a Java application server.

About this task

The Talend Repository Manager RPM supports two installation modes. If talend-tac is already installed, it installs Talend Repository Manager into Talend Administration Center. If not, Talend Repository Manager is installed in stand-alone mode. A service is created only if the installation is done in stand-alone mode.

The default installation also installs the following dependencies:

  • which

In case of custom installation, these dependencies must be installed beforehand.


  1. Create a file called talend.repo in the /etc/yum.repos.d directory, containing the following configuration:
    name=Talend 7.1.1

    Credentials (user and password) are provided in the license email sent by Talend.

    Your repository is now ready for use.
  2. Install Talend Repository Manager.
    • To install the package with its default configuration, use the following command:
      sudo yum install talend-repo-mgr

      This command does not require any additional parameter. It installs the package and its dependencies with their default configuration in the default /opt/talend directory.

    • If the default parameters do not match your requirements (custom Tomcat installation, different installation directory, and so on), install the package with custom parameters using the RPM command.

      For example, the following command installs the module in a specific directory:

      rpm -i --prefix=/opt/folderpath talend-repo-mgr-7.1.1-1-x86_64.rpm

      The list of configuration parameters is detailed in Talend Repository Manager RPM configuration parameters.

      Note: When installing the package with custom parameters, the dependencies listed above are not installed. You need to install them beforehand. Also, make sure that the path to Tomcat is correct.
    The package is now installed.
