Warning

Only users that have the Operation Manager role and rights can have a read-write access to the tasks and profiles list. Other types of users can have a read-only access or no access to the list. For further information on access rights, see User roles/rights in the Administration Center . When a user of the Administration Center opens this page, he/she will have access only to the items for which the user has been granted the right authorization by the Administrator.

Warning

Make sure your Talend Runtime server(s) are configured (agent must be running), then you can create the various execution tasks and profiles that you want to launch.

A profile represents feature descriptions and configuration resources that can be distributed throughout several Talend Runtimes, and that you can configure in Talend Administration Center. Those profiles are created either from the Provisioning page in Talend Administration Center or via commands in the Talend Runtime container. For more information about those commands, see the Talend ESB Infrastructure Services Configuration Guide.

The profiles are listed with the execution tasks, to access them, complete the following:

In the Menu tree view, click Conductor, then ESB Conductor to display the list of profiles that will be applied on the Talend Runtime.

When you access this list for the first time, no profile shows on the list.
