Talend Administration Center

When you access Talend Administration Center for the first time, you will have to complete checking steps before being able to log in.

The login process depends on the Single-Sign On configuration:

  • if SSO is deactivated you will be able to log in the application with the default user credentials.

  • if SSO was enabled during the Talend Administration Center installation, you will be able to configure SSO according to your Identity Provider System. For more information on how to enable SSO when installing Talend Administration Center (manually or via Talend Installer), see the Talend Installation Guide.

Without SSO

  1. Type in the administrator password (by default, it is admin) in the Database Configuration page and click OK.

  2. If no license or an invalid license is found during the series of checks, you will be prompted to specify a license. Click the Set new license button.

  3. Click Browse to browse to your license file and click Upload.

    The license determines the types of users and projects you can manage as an administrator in Talend Administration Center. For more information, see What domains can you work in depending on your user type and license.

  4. Upon validation of your license, Talend Administration Center runs a series of checks again, and displays the following options:

    • Set new license: allows you to set a new license by repeating the previous step.

    • Validate your license manually: allows you to validate the loaded license. For more information, see Generating a validation request.

    • Project Check: allows you to migrate existing projects to your new Talend Administration Center.

    • Transfer libraries: allows you to move external libraries stored on SVN or Nexus to the official Nexus repository where libraries are stored. For more information, see Migrating external libraries.

    • Go to login page: allows to you to open the login page to log in to the Talend Administration Center.

  5. Click Go to login page and type in the default credentials ((admin@company.com/admin)) in the [Login] dialog box.

    After the first connection, it is strongly recommended not to use the default user account to access the application for security reasons. You can either change the default credentials of this account (admin@company.com/admin) or create another administrator user and remove the default account.

    If you want to change the default password that allows you to change the database configuration (recommended), you have to edit the database.config.password parameter value in the configuration.properties file. For more information, see the Talend Installation Guide.

  6. Click the Login button. Talend Administration Center opens up on a welcome page.

    The menus and menu items shown vary according to the edition of Talend Administration Center currently in use. They also vary according to your role, whether you are an Administrator, Operation manager, Designer or Viewer.

With SSO

  1. Type in the administrator password (by default, it is admin) in the Database Configuration page and click OK.

    If you want to change this default password that allows you to change the database configuration (recommended), you have to edit the database.config.password parameter value in the configuration.properties file. For more information, see the Talend Installation Guide.

  2. Click the SSO node, configure it then click Save to save your changes in the database:

    Field

    Value

    IDP metadata

    Click Launch Upload and upload the Identity Provider metadata file you have previously downloaded from the Identity Provider system (Okta, SiteMinder).

    Allow Direct Login

    Select true or false depending on whether you want to allow users to log in via the Talend Administration Center login page.

    If you select true, next time a user will try to log in Talend Administration Center, a message will inform the user that he/she has to log in via the Identity Provider system, which means the user will have to log into this system first and click the Talend Administration Center application to access it.

    Identity Provider System

    Select your Identity Provider System in the list.

    (Okta only) Organization URL

    Enter your Okta Organization URL, https://talend.okta.com for example.

    (Okta only) Okta App Embed link

    Enter the link used to sign into your application from a portal outside of Okta (can be found in Okta configuration).

    Role Mapping fields

    If you want to map the application user roles with the roles defined in the Identity Provider system, fill in the role fields with the corresponding SAML role attributes previously set in the Identity Provider system.

    Once you have defined roles at the Identity Provider side, you will not be able to edit the user roles from Talend Administration Center.

    Ex: Talend Administration Center Roles > Administrator = saml_tac_admin; Operation Manager = saml_tac_om

    Ex: Talend Data Preparation Roles > Administrator = saml_dp_admin; Data Preparator = saml_dp_dp

    Ex: Talend Data Stewardship Roles > Data Steward = saml_tds_ds

    For more information on how to implement SSO at the Identity Provider side, see the Talend Installation Guide.
