Talend Studio comes with some default user types. A specific system role is defined for each of these types.
To edit system roles, which are initally stored only on the MDM Server, you must first import them into the MDM Repository tree view. For more information on importing objects from the MDM Server, see Importing server items from the MDM Server.
Whenever a user (other than a View user) is added to a system role, the total number of users in the role is incremented and compared to the corresponding field in the license token.
Each user type has a different scope when using Talend MDM. The table below describes the roles/rights for each default-user type in Talend Studio.
Role in MDM
Can run the Studio
Can use the Web UI
Can connect through a Job or any other Web Service call
The login and password that are provided by Talend enable an administrator to get through the authentication page and access Talend Studio. This administrator can then define role permissions and what data objects or other items are accessible for a specific role. For further information, see Roles and access control.
These functional roles, which are defined centrally in the Studio, are then assigned to business users through Talend MDM Web User Interface. For more information, see the Talend MDM Web User Interface User Guide.
When you connect to the Studio as a Talend administrator, you have only the rights to manage roles and access control in the Studio, but you do not have any of the other rights of the System-Admin.
Each user must belong to a system role. If a user does not belong to a system role, he or she cannot use Talend MDM.
