Each MDM project requires a connection to at least one MDM server.

For further information on the installation procedure, see Installing the MDM Server .

For further information on launching Talend Studio, see Launching the Studio for the first time.

Before you begin

Make sure that the MDM server is up and running before launching Talend Studio.

Procedure

  1. In the Studio main window, in the Server Explorer panel, click the button to specify a new MDM server location.

    The Add Server Location dialog box pops up.

    You can have more than one active connection to the MDM server using different authentication information.

  2. In the Name field, enter a name or description for the MDM server to which you want to connect.

    You can then choose this alias to refer to the server from different points within the Studio. This simplifies deployment of MDM related integration and quality Jobs.

  3. In the Server field, enter the URL of the MDM server to which you want to connect.

    The server URL is structured as follows: http://[server address or server name]:[server port]/talendmdm/services/soap

  4. Enter admin as the user name and talend as the password.
  5. Click OK to close the dialog box.

Results

A connection to the MDM server is created.
