The recommended way to configure the connection to the database and to the shared repository (Git or SVN) is through the Web interface of Talend Administration Center.

  1. Start the application server (Tomcat or JBoss), then open a Web browser and type in the following URL:

    http://localhost:8080/<ApplicationPath>.

    Replace <localhost> with the IP address or the hostname of the Web server if the Web browser IP is different from the machine you are on and <ApplicationPath> with the Talend Administration Center Web application path.

    For example, http://localhost:8080/org.talend.administrator.

    Choose a port according to your environment. The default port 8080 may clash with Talend MDM or another application.

    When connecting for the first time, a dialog box is displayed, asking you the password to access the Database Configuration page:

  2. Type in the default admin password. H2 database connection parameters display and some automatic checks are performed on driver, url, connection, version information.

    The administration database (storing users, rights, etc.) being an H2 embedded database, its access information is automatically set. However:

    • for security reasons and to improve performances, the ;MV_STORE=FALSE;MVCC=TRUE additional parameters must be added to the H2 default URL. The H2 database URL should thus looks like the following:

      jdbc:h2:~/talend_administrator;MV_STORE=FALSE;MVCC=TRUE;AUTO_SERVER=TRUE;LOCK_TIMEOUT=15000
    • if you do not want to use the embedded H2 database, you can set up a different database server (MySQL, MSSQL or Oracle) and set the corresponding connection parameters. For more information, see Configuring Talend Administration Center to run on a different database than H2.

  3. Click Set new license.

  4. Browse your system to the License file you received from Talend and click Upload. A final License check is performed.

  5. Click Go to Login.

  6. On the Login page, type in the default connection login for your first access:

    Default login: admin@company.com,

    Default password: admin.

    Those credentials correspond to the default user of the Web application. You can create a new one via the Users menu in Talend Administration Center, and then delete the admin@company.com user after you are connected using the newly created user login.

Note

If your Web access is restricted, you may need to click Validate your license manually to perform the validation of your license key. Follow the instructions on screen.

Once the license is validated, the navigation bar of Talend Administration Center opens with all the pages accessible for the default administrator user account. For more information on which pages of Talend Administration Center an administrator user can access, see the Talend Administration Center User Guide.

You can now configure the link to the shared repository (Git or SVN):

  1. Click Configuration to access the setting page of Talend Administration Center.

  2. Change the following parameters for the Git or SVN module using the parameters you have set during the installation process of the Git or SVN server.

    - Server Location URL: your Git or SVN repository URL.

    - Username: your Git or SVN repository user.

    - Password: your Git or SVN repository password.

For examples of Git or SVN URLs, and more details, see Setting up your Repository on Git or SVN, Installing and configuring an SVN server on Windows, Installing and configuring Subversion on Linux Ubuntu, apache, Installing and configuring Subversion on Linux Ubuntu, ssh, and Installing and configuring Git.

Note

If you use several Git or SVN repositories to store your projects, refer to the User Guide of Talend Administration Center and check the Advanced settings procedure.

The link to Git or SVN 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. To do so, you have to:

  1. Create one or more users from the Users page;

  2. Create a new, remote, collaborative project from the Projects page;

  3. Associate the user(s) with the project from the Project authorizations page.

For more details on how to add a project in Talend Administration Center, see the Talend Administration Center User Guide.
