How to Install Talend Community Components from Exchange

Talend Open Studio allows you to access various community components that are compatible with your current version of Talend. You can download and install these components to use them as per your requirements. 

These components comes handy when you want to perform some transformation or retrieve data from sources whose inbuilt components are not provided by Talend. e.g. For retrieving data from Google Analytics, Talend does not provide built in components either you have to understand their API and write a code to retrieve the data or you can install community/Exchange component tGoogleAnalytics and use it for retrieving.

Lets look at, How to download and install custom component from Exchange or Community.

1. Launch Talend Open Studio for DI and open any of the existing Project.

2. In the Menu bar, Click on Window and select Preferences.

3. In the Preferences window, search for “Exchange”. Click on Exchange under Talend as shown below and Click on Sign In button.

You can see that currently there is no User signed for Exchange.

4.  In the Connect to TalendForge window, Sign up for TalendForge account.

If you already have an account for TalendForge, you can also provide the credentials by clicking on “Connect on Existing account”.

5. Provide the credentials and click OK.
