About this task
Install the following relevant modules either using the installer or
- Talend IAM (Talend Identity and Access Management) service: a mandatory service for using MDM, which provides authentication and SSO (Single Sign On) for the applications using Talend Administration Center as the Identity Provider.
- Talend Administration Center: a mandatory web-application for using MDM, which allows the administrator to manage MDM users and projects.
- Talend MDM server: includes the MDM central data hub and the Talend MDM Web UI web-application where MDM data is governed and monitored.
- MDM Workflow server (Bonita BPM server): a mandatory service for using the MDM workflow feature. It is installed as an MDM server component together with other MDM packs.
- Talend Studio: a client studio that enables you to build data models employing the necessary business and data rules to create one single master copy of the data.
For example, to fully dive into the MDM demo project, select these components in the following two steps when installing your product using installer:
For more information about how to install them, see Talend Installation Guide.
Start Talend IAM, Talend Administration Center, Talend
MDM, and Bonita BPM (only when using MDM workflow feature)
For more information about how to start these services, see Talend Installation Guide.
Start Talend Studio and import the MDM
demo project into it.
All items will be listed in the MDM repository under the MDM perspective.
Update the value of the context variable host and port in the Contexts
view under the Talend Studio
Integration perspective if the
MDM server is not installed locally and if you did not choose the default port
number 8180 during the installation.
In this example, all servers and Talend Studio are installed locally with the default port number, so just keep the context variable values as they are.
Create a connection to the MDM server and check the
connection to the server in the Server
Explorer panel in Talend Studio.
For more information about how to create an MDM server connection, see the section on creating a connection to the MDM server in Talend Studio User Guide.
Deploy the demo project repository items to the MDM server.
