For an SVN or Git managed project, a tag is a read-only copy that records the current state of the project at the point of time the tag is created.

Warning

When working in a tag, you can make changes to your project items, but you will be unable to permanently save your changes to a Job unless you copy the Job to a branch or the trunk/master. For how to copy a Job to a branch, see How to copy a Job to a branch.

You can create a tag for a project either in Talend Studio or in Talend Administration Center.

To create a tag for a project in Talend Studio, do the following:

Note

Close all open editors in the design workspace before trying to create a tag. Otherwise, a warning message will appear prompting you to close all open editors.

If you are working on an SVN managed project:

  1. Open the remote project for which you want to create a tag.

  2. Click the icon at the upper right corner of the Repository tree view to open the [Branch management] dialog box.

  3. Click the Create a tag button, and in the next dialog box select the source from the tag's source list, trunk in this example, enter a tag name, and click OK.

  4. In the [Confirm] dialog box, click OK to confirm your tag creation.

    Creating a tag may take some time. When done, the tag you created will appear on the tags list in the [Branch management] dialog box and you can switch to it by following the steps in How to switch between branches or tags.

If you are working on a Git managed project:

Note

All tags are visible for all projects on the same Git repository. Therefore, if you create some tags for one project, all other projects on the same Git repository will have the same list.

  1. Open the remote project for which you want to create a tag.

  2. Click the top bar of the Repository tree view to open a drop-down menu.

  3. Select More ... from the drop-down menu and then select Add Tag from the sub-menu.

  4. In the [New Tag] dialog box, select the source, which can be the master or a branch based on which your tag will be created, enter a name for your new tag, and click OK.

    Warning

    You cannot create tags based on a local branch you have created in the Studio.

    Creating a tag may take some time. When done, the tag you created will be listed on the drop-down menu when clicking the top bar of the Repository tree view, and you can switch to it by following the steps in How to switch between branches or tags.
