Consider the following requirements for your system:

  • Talend Administrator Center 6.3.1 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-6.3.1.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 step6 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.
    • TPS-3087 reverts changes of the TAC-11970 (TPS-2800). To avoid issues with the patch it's required to cleanup Jobserver work folder
  11. Restart the TAC.


    • It's recommended to clear browser cache after TAC patch were applied.
