The sections below explain all available management options for simple and composite Views.

How to test Views

From Talend Studio, you can execute a View to see if it works as expected.

Prerequisite(s): You have already connected to the MDM server. At least one View exists and the View to be tested has already been deployed to the MDM server.

To test a View, proceed as follows:

  1. In the MDM Repository tree view, expand the View node, click the Web Filter folder and then double-click the View you want to execute to open the corresponding editor.

  2. Click the icon at the top of the View editor.

    A new tab opens with a Characteristics area which shows the details of the View and a Search and results area which allows you to define the search criteria and check the search results.

  3. In the Search and results area, select a container that holds the data of the business entity you want to access. In this example, select Product.

  4. If needed, select one option from the Search on list to narrow down your search for the data records you want to view. In this example, select ProductFamily/Name.

  5. Enter a value you want to search in the field next to the Search on list. In this example, enter p.

  6. Click the Search button.

    The data records which match the search criteria will be listed. In this example, all product family records whose name contains the character "p" are displayed.

    You can double-click one item to open the [XML Viewer] dialog box which displays the record in a tree view and allows you to check the source of the data record.

  7. Access Talend MDM Web User Interface and verify that all data records which match the search criteria are returned.
