Adding a Resource

To add an individual Resource from Talend Administration Center, complete the following:

  2. Enter the following information as necessary.

    Field

    Description

    Name

    Enter a name for the Resource. You can also click [...] to view or edit the name if it is too long and can not be fully shown in the field.

    Resource

    Enter the URL of the Resource. You can also click [...] to view or edit the URL if it is too long and can not be fully shown in the field.

    • For SOAP services, enter the URL in the {targetNamespace}operationName format.

      • If you select equal in the Matching list, enter the full URL. For example, {http://airportsoap.sopera.de}getAirportInformationByISOCountryCode.

      • If you select regexp in the Matching list, enter a regular expression to be used to delimit the Resource. For example, \{http://airportsoap\.sopera\.de\}\w.

    • For REST services, enter the URL in the Endpoint/URI pattern format. It is recommended to use the regexp matching condition for REST services. Select regexp in the Matching list. In the Resource field, enter a regular expression to be used to delimit the Resource, for example, (/services)?/numberservice/doubleit/(\d)*.

    Matching

    Select from equal and regexp.

  3. Click Save to validate the configuration or Cancel to cancel the creation of the Resource.

    Warning

    The Resource will be added to the Authorization repository only after creating an assignment to a Role. Otherwise the Resource will be lost once you leave this Web-Browser session.

You can also add multiple SOAP Resources using the [Create Resources] wizard. To do so:

  1. From the toolbar on the Resource panel, click Add > SOAP Resource to show the [Create Resources] wizard.

  2. Select to create the Resource from a File, URL, Service Registry, or Service Locator. You can create multiple Resources from these options.

    • Select File to add a Resource from a WSDL file. Click Browse to browse to the WSDL file. Its WSDL tree structure appears in the wizard. Select one or more operations in the WSDL tree structure that you want to add.

    • Select URL to add a Resource from a URL. Enter the URL of a SOAP service and click Upload. The WSDL tree structure appears in the wizard. Select one or more operations in the WSDL tree structure that you want to add.

    • Select Service Registry to add a Resource from the Service Registry. The services that are registered in the Service Registry are listed in the wizard. Select the one you want to add. Its WSDL tree structure appears in the wizard. Select one or more operations in the WSDL tree structure that you want to add.

      If the Service Registry is not available, you will get an error message in the wizard.

    • Select Service Locator to add a Resource from the Service Locator. The services that are monitored in the Service Locator are listed in the wizard. Select the SOAP service you want to add. Its WSDL tree structure appears in the wizard. Select one or more operations in the WSDL tree structure that you want to add. Note that REST services and unavailable SOAP services are greyed out in the list and cannot be selected. To refresh the list, click the button.

      If the Service Locator is not available, you will get an error message in the wizard.

  3. Once you have selected one or more services or operations, you can click Finish to validate the creation and close the wizard or click Next to go to the next step.

    Warning

    The Next and Finish buttons are disabled if no operation is selected.

    You can edit the name and the URL of the Resources.

    The matching criteria is equal default. You can change it to regexp in the Matching list. When you do this change, a dialog box appears prompting if you would like to change the URL of the Resource to a regular expression \{\w*\}<ServiceName>#\{\w*\}<OperationName> to be used to delimit the Resource. Click Yes to accept it or No to ignore it.

    Click the button to remove a Resource.

  5. Click Previous to add more Resources or click Finish to validate the creation and close the wizard.

    Warning

    The Resource will be added to the Authorization repository only after creating an assignment to a Role. Otherwise the Resource will be lost once you leave this Web-Browser session.

  1. In the list of Resources, select the Resource you want to duplicate.

  2. On the toolbar, click Duplicate. The configuration panel to the right shows the metadata of the selected Resource.

  2. On the toolbar, click Delete. A confirmation dialog box opens, prompting you to confirm that you want to delete all assignments related to the Resource(s).

  3. Click OK to remove the Resource from the Resource list.

Exporting a Resource

Talend Administration Center allows you to export the Resources in the current instance of the Administration Center to XML files. To do so:

  1. In the list of Resources, select one or more Resources that you want to export.

  2. On the toolbar, click Export > Resources. The Web browser will prompt you to open or save the selected Resources depending on your Web browser configuration.

    Note that the Export > Resources menu is disabled if no Resource is selected.

Importing a Resource

You can import Resources that you have already created with previous release of the Administration Center. To do so:

  1. In the Resource panel, click Import > Resources on the toolbar.

  2. The [Select a file to upload] wizard appears. Click Browse to browse to the file that you want to import the Resources from and click Import.

    If the file contains Resources that already exist in the Resources panel, you will get a message showing the duplicate Resources and that they are not imported. Click OK to accept it. The other Resources in the file are imported.

Searching a Resource

If you have a great number of Resources and want to filter them, you can do so by typing key words in the filters box. Only the Resources whose name or address contains the text you entered in the filter box will be displayed.

To remove the filter, clear the filter box or click the button next to it.
