Missing repository Items while Building Job

Missing repository Items while Building Job

I am building a simple talend job, that reads a delimited file. I have created a repository metadata for FileDelimited. When I build and run the job, all works fine. However, when I import the BUILD job items into Talend Open Studio, I get a prompt that the items are updated to "Built-in". 
When I am building the jobs, it is not giving me an option to select any meta-data information. Am I missing anything?

Re: Missing repository Items while Building Job

I guess you mean you import the items from a exported job build right?
In this case it is clear because the exported job does not carry the items from the meta data section. A job always knows all values it needs and has a reference to the metadata elements. If this reference cannot be found the job declares the variables or schemas as build-in.

Let me rephrase. When you build a job, you have ability to include sources. So, what I usually do, I build job, deploy it and execute it. All is good. 
However, when I import the job in studio from the build (which has sources), it does not contain the metadata. 
Now, if I export the jobs with "dependencies", all metadata info is saved.
a. What am I doing wrong while doing a build and importing it back from sources? 
b. How can I build jobs on a standalone basis from talend exported job?

The option "with dependencies" is an option available in the Item Export not in the Build Job function.
If you export a build job and include here the sources I am pretty sure the meta data are not included. If you import these items in a separate repository - obviously the schemas and context variables have to change to build-in. 
You question b is not clear for me. In the studio you can export a standalone job and I thought you already did that.
If you mean how to build a job without the studio - sorry this is not possible yet. In the enterprise edition you can export a Build Job with Ant or Maven scripts included to build the job from the exported Java source code for the job.

Its just that we have 2 separate teams working on Talend Open Studio. I usually provide the second team with a build. Sometimes they import that to troubleshoot information. So, they ask me if something was missing in the builds (because of the popup saying changing of components to Built-in).
This clarifies. I thought I was doing something wrong whilst building the jobs!
Thank you!
