About Connectors

Anypoint connectors are Mule runtime engine extensions that enable you to connect to APIs and resources on external systems, such as Salesforce, Amazon S3, ServiceNow, and Twitter.


To use this connector, you must be familiar with:

  • The Amazon S3 API

  • Anypoint Connectors

  • Mule runtime engine (Mule)

  • Elements and global elements in a Mule flow

  • Creating a Mule app using Anypoint Studio (Studio)

Before creating an app, you must have:

  • Credentials to access the Amazon S3 target resource

  • Anypoint Platform

  • Anypoint Studio version 7.x or later

  • Amazon Web Services

  • AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) credentials

For the Amazon S3 operations to work, you need to enable or update the subset of the overall list of actions in the Amazon S3 bucket to specify that the AWS account has access these actions.

Common Use Cases for the Connector

The following are common use cases for the Amazon S3 connector:

  • Store an image from a URL on Amazon S3, and then retrieve and display the image.

  • Create an image link in Amazon S3 and update the status in Twitter along with the image link.

For examples, see Examples.

Authentication Types

Amazon S3 connections use the following authentication types:

  • Basic

    Uses a session token provided by Amazon STS to connect to Amazon S3

  • Role
