Function

tStewardshipTaskInput reads data sets stored in the stewardship console database in the form of tasks. This component can retrieve tasks according to certain search criteria or without any search criteria, on the condition that the output schema is the same for all the retrieved tasks.

Note

In order to better understand the purpose of this component, check the Talend Data Stewardship Console User Guide.

Purpose

This component reads data in the datastewardship console and thus makes it possible to process this data, to use any Talend output component and write the data retrieved from the stewardship database into the target application or database.

Basic Settings

Schema and Edit Schema

A schema is a row description, it defines the number of fields that will be processed and passed on to the next component. The schema is either built-in or remote in the Repository.

Click Edit schema to make changes to the schema. If the current schema is of the Repository type, three options are available:

  • View schema: choose this option to view the schema only.

  • Change to built-in property: choose this option to change the schema to Built-in for local changes.

  • Update repository connection: choose this option to change the schema stored in the repository and decide whether to propagate the changes to all the Jobs upon completion. If you just want to propagate the changes to the current Job, you can select No upon completion and choose this schema metadata again in the [Repository Content] window.

 

 

Built-in: The schema will be created and stored for this component only. Related Topic: see Talend Studio User Guide.

 

 

Repository: The schema already exists and is stored in the repository. You can reuse it in various projects and jobs. Related Topic: see Talend Studio User Guide.
