Using the Components Manager, you can download and install new components and component updates that Talend provides out of regular software releases.

When a dialog box pops up notifying you that a component update is available for you to install, you can open the Components Manager directly from the dialog box. You can also open the Components Manager through the Help menu to check for available new components and/or updates.

If you are working on a remote project, you can:

  • configure whether to allow your Talend Studio to share automatically the installed component or component update to users connected to the same project.
  • configure how often your Talend Studio automatically checks for new components or component updates.

For more information, see Configuring component and component update sharing.

Before you begin

Make sure you have properly set up your artifact repository in your Talend Studio. For more information, see Artifact repository preferences (Talend > Artifact Repository > Repository Settings).
