MuleSoft Connector Certification Program Guidelines

The sections below describe the specific details necessary for connector certification. For a full overview of the process, visit this page.

What is the MuleSoft Connector Certification Program?

MuleSoft’s connector certification program guides you through the process of creating an enterprise-grade connector that is ready for certification by MuleSoft. Once certified, the connector will be made available through the Anypoint Exchange for discovery and use for our customers and developers.

Before You Begin

Before embarking on the certification program, please consider the following and make sure you can adhere to the below requirements:

  • Connector must be kept current and secure, and re-certified at least once a year.

  • Connector must be built and distributed for the enterprise version of the MuleSoft Software or MuleSoft Service.

  • All transaction for the connector will take place between the customer and the partner, not through MuleSoft.

  • Connector must be a fully-functional, production-ready, enterprise-grade application/protocol connector (i.e. it’s a connector that connects Mule with an external system)

  • Code must be ready for deployment into a continuous integration environment. Code should be able to be compiled from command line without importing private repos. Credential should be provided separately and able to be set at compile time. In addition, sandbox credential for your connector is required for certification.

  • Connector must only use third party libraries that are open source or owned by you. No third-party, non-distributable libraries will be accepted.

  • If a similar connector already exists on Anypoint Exchange, you can still submit your connector granted that it provides additional functionality superior to the existing connector.

Providing Support

Partners or developers are required to provide full support for the connector(s) on Anypoint Exchange. For support inquiries received by MuleSoft, MuleSoft will provide a commercially reasonable level of first-tier telephone, web-based and/or email support directly to customers. MuleSoft will take and resolve any issues that are linked to commercial MuleSoft products. Any issues specific to the partner connector will be escalated to the partner.

  • Partner will respond to all support queries escalated from MuleSoft within one business day.

  • Partner will exercise best effort to resolve technical support issues for customers within five business days.

Pricing For Your Connector

Partners or developers will have sole discretion to decide whether you make your connectors available for free or for a fee. However, all connectors must be available at no cost within Anypoint Studio. While not mandatory, we recommend providing a trial of your connector (for design and deployment) for customers.

Category Details

Free

Connector will be available for download and use for free to customers through Anypoint Exchange.

Paid

Paid connectors can be used in Mule applications in design time in Anypoint Studio. In deployment, the connector will not run without a license. Customers will need to purchase the connector directly from the partner, and should manage the use of the paid connector using a generated license key provided by MuleSoft. The pricing of the connector will be determined by the partner.

License Terms

Please add the following legal terms before your license terms in LICENSE.md
