Talend Administration Center

The login and password that were provided to you enable you to get through the authentication page and access Talend Administration Center. Then, as an Administrator, you can define the roles and rights of all other users.

The table below describes the user roles/rights in Talend Administration Center. It details what menus and menu items in the Administration Center each type of user role can have access to and what type of access (read-write or read-only).

Note that modification of roles and rights of a user assigned to a project is taken into account after next startup, if this user is already connected to the project.

Note

Ten additional custom roles are available to assign rights in a way which is more closely mapped to your organization. For more information, refer to Managing rights associated with roles.

Note that:

  • A user with Auditor role cannot have Administrator or Security Administrator at the same time.

  • Generally, users with r (read-only) rights are able to generate, deploy, and execute Jobs in Talend Administration Center.

    However, a user with Viewer role cannot execute Jobs or change the values on the Job Conductor page.

  • The second person pronoun "you" used through out the document addresses the user of Talend Administration Center depending on his/her roles and rights and not any generic user of the Administration Center.

  • The Operation manager, Designer, and Viewer all have read access on Studio (following project authorization). The Designer also has write access.
