You can use the Contexts view in the Studio to define context groups, context parameters and context values.

Before you begin

  • An Artifact is created and open in the Studio.


  1. In the Studio workspace, click the Contexts tab to open the Contexts view.
    If the Contexts tab does not show in the Studio, click Window > Show view > Talend, and select Contexts.
  2. From the Contexts view:
    1. Use the [+] button at the top right corner to add a new context group.
      For further information, see Defining contexts.
    2. Use the [+] button at the bottom of the view to add lines in the table and define the names and values of the context variables.
      For further information, see Defining context variables for a Job or Route.
    Note: Context parameter values are processed differently when executing a Task from Talend Cloud Management Console or Talend Studio. When entering the value for a context parameter in Talend Cloud Management Console during Task configuration, you must use \\ instead of \ when the value could be interpreted as a special character, for example, \t.
