An authorized user can export/import an archive for a data integration Job from the Integration perspective into the MDM perspective. A job-based Process or a job-based Trigger can then be automatically generated from the imported archive. For more information, see Generating a job-based Process and Generating a job-based Trigger.

Once the job-based Process is generated, it can be attached to a Trigger which will allow, when kicked off, the data integration operation to be carried out on master data.

For more information on creating and managing Triggers, see Triggers.

How to export a Job

From the Integration perspective in Talend Studio, you can export one or more Jobs in order to import them into the MDM perspective.

The export Job feature allows you to deploy and execute the Job on the MDM server. Exporting a Job adds to an archive all the files required to execute the Job, including the .bat and .sh files along with the possible context-parameter files or relative files.

Prerequisite(s): You have already connected to the MDM server from Talend Studio. At least one data integration Job is created in the Integration perspective.

To export one or more data integration Jobs:

  1. In the Integration perspective, expand the Job Designs node in the Repository tree view and browse to the Job you want to export.

  2. Right-click the Job and select Build Job from the contextual menu.

    The [Build Job] dialog box displays.

    Note

    You can show/hide a tree view of all created Jobs directly from the [Build Job] dialog box by clicking the and the buttons respectively. The Jobs you selected earlier in the Integration perspective display with selected check boxes. This flexibility allows you to modify the selection of items to be exported directly from the dialog box without having to close it and go back to the Integration perspective in Talend Studio.

  3. In the To archive file field, browse to where you want to export the archive file.

  4. In the Job Version area, select the version number of the Job you want to export if you have created more than one version.

  5. From the Select the build type list, select a type for the exported file.

  6. Click Finish to validate your changes, complete the export operation and close the dialog box.

A file of the defined type holding the job information is created in the defined place.

How to import a Job archive

Talend Studio enables you to import Jobs created in the Integration perspective into the MDM perspective. Once imported, you can automatically generate Processes based on these Jobs. For more information on how to generate a job-related action, see Generating a job-based Process.

Prerequisite(s): You have already connected to the MDM server from Talend Studio. You have exported one or more Jobs in .war files from the Integration perspective.

To import one or more Jobs into the MDM perspective, do the following:

  1. In the MDM Repository tree view, right-click the Job Designs node and select Import Items from the contextual menu.

    The [Import Repository Items] dialog box displays.

  2. In the dialog box, select the file including the exported Job.

  3. Click Finish to import the Job and close the dialog box.

    The imported Job displays under the Job Designs node in the MDM Repository tree view.
