In Anypoint Studio, you must store the file in the project directory for your Mule app:

You can add the .properties file to your Mule app through the Global Element called Configuration Properties. The XML for this element looks like this:

<configuration-properties file="" doc:name="Spring Property Placeholders" doc:id="07ee5c11-bc54-4d55-91b8-ce02f743cb7a" />

Note that you cannot use a YAML file to create Spring property placeholders, as you can for non-Spring modules.
