Talend Studio allows you to create multiple connections in one go using a connection creation script.

The following example demonstrates how to create a local connection and a Talend Administration Center connection in one go using a script.


  1. Create a script file to define the connection details in JSON format.

    In this example, name the script myConnections.json put it in the Talend Studio installation directory.

            "name": "localConnection",
            "description": "My local connection",
            "local": true,
            "user": "",
            "workSpace": "D:\\Talend\\workspace"
            "name": "remoteConnection",
            "description": "My TAC connection",
            "local": false,
            "user": "",
            "password": "mypassword",
            "workSpace": "D:\\Talend\\remoteworkspace",
            "url": ""
  2. In the Talend Studio installation directory, run the following command:

    This example assumes you are using Talend Studio on Microsoft Windows. If you are working on another Operating System, use the executable file of Talend Studio corresponding to your Operating System.

    Talend-Studio-win-x86_64.exe -nosplash -application org.talend.commandline.GenerateConnection -consoleLog -data commandline-workspace -f myConnections.json
  3. Launch Talend Studio.
  4. In the Talend Studio login window, click the Manage Connections button to open the Connections window and check your connections.


The connections defined in the script file are connected and shown in the Connections window.
