tMarkLogicBulkLoad – Docs for ESB 7.x


Imports local files into a MarkLogic server database in bulk mode using the
MarkLogic Content Pump (MLCP) tool.

tMarkLogicBulkLoad Standard properties

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

The Standard
tMarkLogicBulkLoad component belongs to the Big Data and the Databases NoSQL

The component in this framework is available in all Talend products with Big Data
and in Talend Data Fabric.

Basic settings

Property Type

Either Built-In or Repository.

  • Built-In: No property data
    stored centrally.

  • Repository: Select the
    repository file in which the properties are stored. The database
    connection fields that follow are completed automatically using
    the data retrieved.

Use an existing connection

Select this check box and in the Component List click the relevant connection component to
reuse the connection details you already defined.

Note: When a Job contains the parent Job and the child Job, if you
need to share an existing connection between the two levels, for example, to share the
connection created by the parent Job with the child Job, you have to:

  1. In the parent level, register the database connection
    to be shared in the Basic
    view of the connection component which creates that very database

  2. In the child level, use a dedicated connection
    component to read that registered database connection.

For an example about how to share a database connection
across Job levels, see

Talend Studio
User Guide


Enter the IP address or hostname of the MarkLogic server.


Enter the listening port number of the MarkLogic server.


Enter the name of the MarkLogic database you want to use.

Username and Password

Enter the user authentication data to access the MarkLogic database.

To enter the password, click the […] button next to the
password field, and then in the pop-up dialog box enter the password between double quotes
and click OK to save the settings.

Load Folder

Specify the directory to the local files to be imported into the
MarkLogic database.

DocId Prefixed As

Specify the prefix used to construct the URI of the imported files.
For more information about the URI construction, see https://docs.marklogic.com/guide/ingestion/content-pump#id_14982.

Advanced settings

Additional MLCP Parameters

Specify additional options for the MLCP import command. For more
information about the import options, see https://docs.marklogic.com/guide/ingestion/content-pump#id_63999.

Use external MLCP process

As the MarkLogic Content Pump (MLCP) program is required on the machine
where you run your Job that involves this component, you can do either
of the following:

  • Keep this check box clear to use a built-in MLCP library when
    running this component to load data. In this case, your Job is
    memory demanding.

  • If you need to use your own MLCP, that is to say, an MLCP
    external to the Studio, select this check box. In this case,
    your Job itself is not memory demanding but your MLCP process

For further information about MLCP, see the related Marklogic
documentation: Loading Content Using Marklogic
Content Pump

tStatCatcher Statistics

Select this check box to gather the Job processing metadata at the Job
level as well as at each component level.

Global Variables

Global Variables

ERROR_MESSAGE: the error message generated by the
component when an error occurs. This is an After variable and it returns a string. This
variable functions only if the Die on error check box is
cleared, if the component has this check box.

A Flow variable functions during the execution of a component while an After variable
functions after the execution of the component.

To fill up a field or expression with a variable, press Ctrl +
to access the variable list and choose the variable to use from it.

For further information about variables, see
Talend Studio

User Guide.


Usage rule

This component can be used together with the tMarkLogicInput component to check if the files are
imported as expected.

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.

The Dynamic settings table is
available only when the Use an existing
check box is selected in the Basic settings view. Once a dynamic parameter is
defined, the Component List box in the
Basic settings 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.


The MarkLogic Content Pump (MLCP) tool needs to be installed on the
machine where you run the Job that involves this component.
