Warning

Only users that have the Operation Manager role and rights can have read-write access to the tasks list. Other types of users can have 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 appropriate authorization by the Administrator.

You can modify the values of the context parameters set in Talend Studio for a specific Job directly from Talend Administration Center and execute the Job without the need to regenerate it.

To set new values for context parameters:

  1. In the upper half of the Job Conductor page, select the task for which you want to modify the context values.

  2. In the lower half of the Job Conductor page, click Context parameters to display the corresponding view.

    The context parameters you defined in Talend Studio for the selected task are displayed on the list in the Context parameter column along with their original values in the Original value column, and are ediable icon in the Custom value column.

  3. Click in the white space of a Custom value cell and set the new value for the corresponding context parameter.

    Note

    When the context parameter is of type String, do not put its value between double quotes, unless if double quotes are needed in to the string value for further use.

    When you modify a Parameter type of context parameter, the new value appears in clear text as you type and then as asterisks when done.

  4. Select/clear the check box of the context parameter you want to activate/deactivate the custom value of when executing the selected task, then click Save to save your changes or Cancel to reset all fields to their original values.

  5. Click Run to execute the task with the newly set values of the context parameters.

You can click Reset on the toolbar to go back to the values defined in Talend Studio.

Note

The Prompt feature, which allows the developer to set the value of a context variable at execution time, is only available in Talend Studio.
