When applications are deployed to CloudHub and exposed using SSL via the shared load balancer or a dedicated load balancer, the HTTP listener within the Mule application must also be configured for SSL.

One issue that arises when enabling SSL for the listener is being able to provide valid certificates for local testing before deploying to Cloudhub. Tools such as mkcert can make this process much easier.


Analytics is the discovery, interpretation, and communication of meaningful patterns in data. It also entails applying data patterns towards effective decision making.- Wikipedia

Anypoint API analytics are metrics that provide insights into how your MuleSoft APIs are performing within your application network. API analytics can help determine if your investment in technology is supporting your company's efforts in successfully meeting its business outcomes.

When developing your MuleSoft Applications, one of the most important things to do is correctly set up your CI/CD Pipeline. A CI/CD pipeline will help your team detect errors as quickly as possible and ensure that every change made is releasable. Setting up a CI/CD Pipeline in MuleSoft can be done in three parts.

1. GitLab config yml file

2. Setting up a config project

3. MuleSoft application deployment


Kiddie testing is doing something in the system, observing an output, and concluding that since the system did, in fact, do something (i.e., it didn’t crash), it must be ok.



At the end of June, MuleSoft released an Anypoint Platform tool that I am so excited about, called the Anypoint Visualizer. As the name implies, the Visualizer provides visibility into your application network, giving you additional insight into your APIs, including:


One of the benefits of being a consultant is having the opportunity to work with a lot of different clients, many just beginning their journey with MuleSoft and API Led Enablement. In this article, I will share some of the observations and findings that I have seen that have enabled this journey to be more successful.


Although the SOA and OSB Maven artifacts provided in the release are much improved from what was released in, this topic provides some additional tweeks needed to get an OSB project to build and deploy with Maven.

Reflecting On The MuleSoft Dallas API Workshop

MuleSoft’s Dallas API Workshop was an educational and enlightening day dedicated to exploring the value and potential of APIs and harnessing the power of API-led development. Throughout the intervening week, we’ve found ourselves returning again and again to the day’s theme to extract and absorb every last insight. One can hardly overstate what APIs represent for the future of business agility or their centrality to digital transformation.

With MuleSoft Connect right around the corner, now is a good time to develop your strategy for sessions and workshops to attend.  The workshops, as noted below, require pre-registration, so be sure to sign up sooner rather than later so you won’t miss out.

To help you develop your strategy, AVIO has created a list of top 3 sessions and workshops to attend. Our focus for these picks is on learning about the new tools and features, along with expanding your MuleSoft knowledge.

We’ve been considering how the principles of Agile software development can be applied more broadly, and what insights they can provide into organizational agility. In the first two parts of this series we considered, respectively, the first and second of The Agile Manifesto’s four value statements.

Customer Collaboration

We come now to the third:  We value customer collaboration over contract negotiation.
