Anypoint Exchange Overview

Anypoint Exchange is a curated catalog of reusable assets. APIs, API groups, API spec fragments, custom assets, examples, GraphQL APIs, integration assets such as connectors, policies, RPA assets, rulesets, and templates are some of the types that are supported in Exchange. See Asset Types for more information about each type of asset. You can catalog (publish), share, discover, learn about, and reuse assets within your organization of developers to facilitate collaboration, boost productivity, and promote standards.

Exchange landing page

Use Exchange to discover, share, incorporate assets and resources into your applications, and view asset usage and engagement metrics. You can create API developer portals, view and test APIs, simulate sending data to APIs by using the mocking service, create assets, and use API Notebooks to describe and test API functions.

Exchange assets are accessible from many places, such as Anypoint Studio (connectors, templates, and examples), API Manager (APIs, API groups, and policies), or Runtime Manager (applications). APIs can be published from Design Center to Exchange.

Assets in the Provided by MuleSoft organization are created by MuleSoft and its partners and certified by MuleSoft. These assets are publicly available to all customers. However, assets that are created by an organization other than Provided by MuleSoft and published in that organization’s instance of Exchange are private and not visible outside that organization. Customers are responsible for any private assets they publish within their Exchange instance.

View Assets by Business Group

A system administrator groups individuals within an organization into business groups. Each group has its own Exchange assets.

To view the business groups, log in to Anypoint Platform and click a group name from the taskbar:

Screenshot - Business groups in upper taskbar drop-down menu

An Exchange administrator sets the groups that this menu displays for each user.

If you cannot find an asset in the current business group scopes, search in other scopes. In the navigation menu click All assets (assets provided by MuleSoft and your own root organization), Provided by MuleSoft, or a business group scope.

Get Started

You can get started either by searching for an existing asset or creating a new one.

  1. From Exchange, either search by type of assets or enter the name of a known asset in the Search assets field.

  2. Select an asset from the search results view.

  3. Review the description of the asset.

To create assets for APIs, connectors, templates, examples, API Notebooks, and custom assets, log into Exchange. See Workflow: Publish APIs for more information.

Test APIs

You can test APIs using the mocking service.

  1. Click the All Types filter, select the REST APIs option, and click Apply.

  2. Click the asset and notice how the API functions appear in the left navigation bar.

  3. Click a function and more information appears. At the right side of the screen, you can test the API by entering sample values to send to the API and get responses from the API.

Language Support

Using multiple languages with Unicode is supported fully throughout Exchange and in all metadata fields, including asset names, descriptions, markdown pages, categories, tags, and reviews.
