tAS400LastInsertId – Docs for ESB 7.x


Obtains the primary key value of the record that was last inserted in an AS/400

tAS400LastInsertId fetches the last inserted ID from a
selected AS/400 Connection.

tAS400LastInsertId Standard properties

These properties are used to configure tAS400LastInsertId running in the Standard Job framework.

The Standard
tAS400LastInsertId component belongs to the Databases family.

The component in this framework is available in all Talend

Note: This component is a specific version of a dynamic database
connector. The properties related to database settings vary depending on your database
type selection. For more information about dynamic database connectors, see Dynamic database components.

Basic settings


Select a type of database from the list and click

Schema and Edit

A schema is a row description. It defines the number of fields
(columns) to be processed and passed on to the next component. When you create a Spark
Job, avoid the reserved word line when naming the


Built-in: You create and store the
schema locally for this component only. Related topic: see
Talend Studio User Guide


Repository: You have already created
the schema and stored it in the Repository. You can reuse it in various
projects and job flow charts. Related topic: see
Talend Studio User Guide


Click Edit
to make changes to the schema. If the current schema is of the Repository type, three options are available:

  • View schema: choose this
    option to view the schema only.

  • Change to built-in property:
    choose this option to change the schema to Built-in for local changes.

  • Update repository connection:
    choose this option to change the schema stored in the repository and decide whether
    to propagate the changes to all the Jobs upon completion. If you just want to
    propagate the changes to the current Job, you can select No upon completion and choose this schema metadata
    again in the Repository Content

Component list

Select the relevant tAS400Connection
component in the list if more than one connection is planned for the
current job.

Advanced settings


Select this check box to collect log data at the component


Usage rule

This component is to be used as an intermediary component.

Dynamic settings

Click the [+] button to add a row in the table
and fill the Code field with a context
variable to choose your database connection dynamically from multiple
connections planned in your Job. This feature is useful when you need to
access database tables having the same data structure but in different
databases, especially when you are working in an environment where you
cannot change your Job settings, for example, when your Job has to be
deployed and executed independent of Talend Studio.

Once a dynamic parameter is defined, the Component List box in the Basic
view becomes unusable.

For examples on using dynamic parameters, see Reading data from databases through context-based dynamic connections and Reading data from different MySQL databases using dynamically loaded connection parameters. For more information on Dynamic
and context variables, see Talend Studio
User Guide.
