There are a number of situations which might require you to restart a Matillion ETL instance. Typically, a restart will be needed after you have made some change to the server configuration, for example:

  • Adding a third-party JDBC driver – If you update the Matillion ETL configuration to use a JDBC driver not supplied as standard, you will need to restart the Matillion ETL instance for the new configuration to come into effect.
  • Applying a licence – You will need to apply a new licence key to Matillion ETL when your existing licence expires, or if you wish to change any of the instance limits built into the software. On applying a new licence key, Matillion ETL must be restarted to gain access to the expected features.
  • Configuring OpenID – Matillion ETL supports OpenID login credentials from a number of different OpenID service providers. After configuring Matillion ETL to use OpenID, a restart is required for the change to take effect.

When any configuration change calls for a restart of the Matillion ETL instance, or when you need to manually restart Matillion ETL for any other reason, follow the restart procedure in this document.
