Although the configuration of a dynamic Big Data platform distribution cannot be exported or imported along with the Jobs that use it, it can be exported or imported via the Dynamic distribution setup view in the Project settings dialog box.

As implied above, the procedure to be explained below is applicable only on a Big Data platform distribution added in such a way as described in Adding the latest Big Data Platform dynamically.

Before you begin

Prerequisites:
  • One of the Talend solutions with Big Data.

Procedure

  1. In the Integration perspective, click File > Edit project properties to open the Project settings dialog box.
  2. Expand the General node and click Dynamic distribution settings to open its view.
  3. Click the Dynamic distribution setup button to open the dynamic distribution configuration wizard.
    Option Description

    Edit an existing dynamic configuration

    Use this radio button to export a dynamic distribution.

    Once selecting this radio button, the Version list becomes activated.

    Then select the distribution you want to export from this list and click Next to open the detail view of this distribution. In this view, click the Export configuration button to export the configuration as a JSON file.

    Import dynamic configuration
