I have some Talend jobs that have been created by developer that is no longer with us. The job seems to have been created in the Linux environment, perhaps a none GUI platform. We would like to get those jobs into the GUI platform that I have downloaded and installed. Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated.
You can indeed create a job on one Operating System, then deploy it and execute it on a different OS.
To achieve this task, simply follow the steps below:
1. Export a job on current Operating System.
2. Import the job onto the other Operating System.
3. Make some change if you need and run it.
However, if the job contains input/output components, the input/output paths should be changed to match the different Operating System.
In this case, we also need to take care about the installed Talend version, isn't it?
Do we need to check the upward compatible of the Talend Versions also?
Yes, Talend software is completely backward compatible, that is to say that the project developed in an old version of studio can be upgrade to a new version of studio and work, but not vice-versa.
In your case, the jobs can be imported into the latest version 5.0.1 even though you don't know which version your colleague used before.
