How to troubleshoot the error 'Job was not built successfully'


Sometimes, building Jobs from Studio fails with the following error:

java.lang.Exception: Job was not built successfully, please check the logs for more details

The Studio .log file doesn't provide any further details about the root cause.

How do you identify the root cause in this situation?



  1. From a DOS cmd console, launch Studio in debug mode with the following command:
    Talend-Studio-win-x86_64 --talendDebug > studio_debug.log
  2. Once Studio is started, go to Window > Show view > General > Console.
  3. Build the Job again, and once the error is thrown, check the Console view, which should provide further details on why the build failed.
