When you create a Job in Talend Studio, by default its version is 0.1, where 0 stands for the major version and 1 for the minor version.

You can create as many versions of the same Job as you want. To do that:

  1. Close your Job if it is open on the design workspace. Otherwise, its properties will be read-only and thus you cannot modify them.

  2. In the Repository tree view, right-click your Job and select Edit properties from the drop-down list to open the [Edit properties] dialog box.

  3. Next to the Version field, click the M button to increment the major version and the m button to increment the minor version.

  4. Click Finish to validate the modification.

Note

By default, when you open a Job, you open its last version.

Any previous version of the Job is read-only and thus cannot be modified.

To change the version of your Job, you can also:

  1. Close your Job if it is open on the design workspace. Otherwise, its properties will be read-only and thus you cannot modify them.

  2. In the Repository tree view, right-click your Job and select Open another version from the drop-down list.

  3. In the dialog box, select the Create new version and open it check box and click the M button to increment the major version and the m button to increment the minor version.

  4. Click Finish to validate the modification and open this new version of your Job.

You can also save your currently active Job and increment its version at the same time, by clicking File > Save As... and setting a new version in the [Save As] dialog box.

Note

If you give your Job a new name, this option does not overwrite your current Job, but it saves your Job as a new one with the same version of the current Job or with a new version if you specify one.

You can access a list of the different versions of a Job and perform certain operations. To do that:

  1. In the Repository tree view, select the Job you want to consult the versions of.

  2. On the configuration tabs panel, click the Job tab and then click Version to display the version list of the selected Job.

  3. Right-click the Job version you want to consult.

  4. Do one of the followings:
