Talend is a data management platform that provides solutions for data integration, data quality, data preparation, big data, and application integration. More information can be found here: https://www.talend.com/
See the below video for a demo to get you started with the Talend Cloud and Stitch connectors in automations:
In order to authenticate to the Talend Cloud connector, you’ll need to generate an API key for your Talend account. The connector will use this API key for authentication and authorization purposes. When creating the connection in automations, you will be prompted with a popup screen to select a region.
Regions can be:
You will also need to provide the API key. You can generate it in Talend Cloud.
Open the Talend Cloud
Navigate to the top right corner and hovering over your username
Choosing Profile Preferences
This opens the About Me page.
In the left side panel go to (a) Personal Access Tokens and click (b) Add token.
The generated token can be used in the automations connector.
The following blocks are available in the Talend Cloud connector:
List Available Tasks
Get Task Status
Wait for Tasks to Complete
Get Crawler Status
Raw API Request
By exposing the Talend APIs as connector blocks in automations, you can orchestrate Talend tasks and integrate them with Qlik Cloud. It’s also possible to interact with the Data Inventory for data quality and data governance needs.
Task chaining of Talend tasks with other business processes
Schedule JDBC crawlers to update the Data Inventory
Raw API request blocks will provide the flexibility to build use cases that are not yet supported through native blocks
Task Chaining and Orchestration
One of the areas where Qlik Application Automation can provide value to users is by being an orchestrator for tasks in Talend Cloud. The Execute Task block can trigger tasks and the Wait For Tasks To Complete block can listen to one or multiple tasks to finish before proceeding on a subsequent job.
This can be useful for scenarios where you might want to run two or more tasks in parallel before proceeding with another task.
See the below video for an in-depth Task Chaining example:
