Why to use metadata?

Talend Studio Developer Guide

Talend Cloud
Design and Development

You can use the Integration Action view in the Studio to define metadata for Integration Actions, and all what you define in the Studio is displayed in the web application when you publish the Action.

By defining metadata information for Integration Actions in the Studio, you want Flows to be:

  • more readable in the web application,

  • easy to find and to categorize in Cloud.

This way you can achieve better user experience for the web user.
