Anypoint MQ Workflow

The steps that follow help you use Anypoint MQ. This same workflow is described in the Anypoint MQ Tutorial.

Install and configure Anypoint MQ:

  1. Log into Anypoint Platform using your Enterprise Mule credentials, and click MQ.

  2. Click Access Management > Users or Roles to create an MQ user or role.

  3. From MQ, create a queue, message exchange, or a FIFO queue.

  4. Click a queue or message exchange name in the detail to access the Message Sender to send messages to a queue or message exchange, and to use the Message Browser to get messages from a queue.

  5. From MQ, click Client Apps to register an application. You can view the client ID and client secret for the application.

In Anypoint Studio:

  1. Install the MQ connector using Anypoint Exchange.

  2. Create a new Mule project with needed building blocks, such as an HTTP connector, Anypoint MQ connector, Set Payload, and a Logger.

  3. Configure the Anypoint MQ connector and provide the Client ID and Secret of the application.

  4. Set the MQ connector’s Operation to publish or consume messages, or to manually ack (accept a message) or nack (don’t accept a message). Alternatively to ack or nack, Anypoint MQ can provide automatic Acknowledgement Mode. If you set the Operation to publish, set the Destination to the name of a queue or message exchange that you created in Anypoint Platform. If you sent the Operation to consume, specify the name of a queue from which you want to receive messages.

  5. Run the Mule application.


  1. Use a REST client such as Postman to send or receive a message.

    The Anypoint MQ application sends the string as a message to the queue or message exchange you specified.

  2. View your message in a browser or the Studio console.
