About the Event Source (Trigger)

An Event Source (or Trigger) is the first event processor in a flow. It receives a triggering event and creates a corresponding Mule event object to forward to the next component (or event processor) in the flow.

Event Source (or Trigger) examples

  • HTTP Request

  • JMS message

  • Salesforce publish

  • File poller

  • Scheduler and more

You can also create your own event source using the Mule SDK.
