Consider the following requirements for your system:

  • Talend Administrator Center 6.4.1 must be installed.


  1. Logon TAC and switch to Configuration->Software Update, then enter the correct values and save referring to the documentation:
  2. Switch to Software update page, where the new patch will be listed. The patch can be downloaded from here into the nexus repository.
  3. Login to local Nexus, and download the patch file.
  4. Stop the TAC.
  5. Create a patch directory (eg: <Talend>/TAC_Patch).
  6. Unzip patch file you received from support into this directory, then unzip the org.talend.administrator.war file as org.talend.administrator folder. (Note: Please rename org.talend.administrator-6.4.1.war if your old tac application folder has a different name. Set the name as same as your old TAC application name).
  7. Create a backup directory (eg: <Talend>/TAC_Backup).
  8. Copy folder <TOMCAT>/webapps/org.talend.administrator into the backup directory.
  9. In <TOMCAT>/webapps/ directory, remove the previous org.talend.administrator folder, then copy the org.talend.administrator folder from step3 and paste in the current directory.
  10. Restore TAC configuration by replacing <TOMCAT>/webapps/org.talend.administrator/WEB-INF/classes/ and with ones from your backup directory.


    • If your TAC db is H2 db and embedded in TAC web folder (<TOMCAT>/webapps/org.talend.administrator/WEB-INF/database by default), don't forget to restore H2 db by replacing this folder with the exact corresponding folder from your backup directory.
    • If your TAC works with SSO, you should restore the IDP Metadata file (<TOMCAT>/webapps/org.talend.administrator/WEB-INF/classes/IDPMetadata.xml) from your backup directory.
  11. Restart the TAC.


    • For TAC TPS-3615, Jobserver patch TPS-3614 must be installed.
    • It's recommended to clear browser cache after TAC patch were applied.
    • For TPS-2494, you need to remove the records with empty branch in projectreference table manually. For example(mysql script): DELETE FROM projectreference WHERE branch IS NULL;
    • For TPS-2951, please clean the executiontaskjobprm table manually at same time. For example(mysql script): DELETE FROM executiontaskjobprm WHERE executiontaskjobprm_executiontask_e_id IS NULL;
    • Patch TPS-2245 contains changes for the "User", "UserGroup", and "ExecutionTask" tables, you will have to do migration on dbconfig page, or use SQL statement instead:

    • Create "uniqueid" column for "User", "UserGroup", and "ExecutionTask" table, for example in MySQL, execute following SQL

      • ALTER TABLE user ADD uniqueid varchar(255);
      • ALTER TABLE usergroup ADD uniqueid varchar(255);
      • ALTER TABLE executiontask ADD uniqueid varchar(255);
    • Fill "uniqueId" column with id, for example in MySQL, execute following SQL

      • UPDATE user set uniqueid=id;
      • UPDATE usergroup set uniqueid=id;
      • UPDATE executiontask set uniqueid=id;
