What’s New


October 18, 2022

What’s New


October 14, 2022

  • Anypoint MQ now includes the ability to create intelligent message routing rules to route a subset of the messages published to an exchange to a specific queue.

    If you create routing rules on numeric property values and you use Anypoint MQ Connector to publish messages, you must upgrade to Anypoint MQ Connector version 3.2.0 or later. Previous versions of the connector send all property values as strings, which results in messages not matching routing rules on numeric properties.
  • Anypoint MQ now supports the Connected Apps feature.

    For information, see Configuring Connected Apps.

  • Anypoint MQ includes two new permissions:

    • Administer destinations

    • Destination subscriber for given environment

    • Destination publisher for given environment

    The Manage destinations permission is deprecated.

    For more information, see Anypoint MQ Permissions.

April 26, 2021

New Features

  • Added the optional payloadVisibility parameter to the Anypoint MQ Broker API. (SE-18968/MQ-2303/MQ-2304)

    By default, the Anypoint MQ Broker API messages endpoint displays the message payload in the response, regardless of the payload size.

    You can control whether to show the message payload in the response by setting the payloadVisibility query parameter to one of:

    • full: Shows the message payload in the response.
      This option is the default.

    • none: Hides the message payload in the response.

    • conditional: Hides the message payload if the payload size is larger than 1 MB.

      For more information, see Example: Retrieve a Message.

  • Changed the message retrieval on the Message Browser page to display the payload only if the payload size is smaller than 1 MB. (SE-18968/MQ-2303/MQ-2304)

    If the payload size is 1 MB or larger, the Message Browser page displays an error.

March 25, 2017


January 28, 2017

New Features


November 5, 2016

Fixed Issues

This release of Anypoint MQ fixes issues with Analytics usage and with OAuth.

Issue Description


Modify startDate and endDate in metrics to use a standard date format, such as 2016-11-01T19:00Z. This change preserves both the old format and the new format for backward compatibility.


Fixed memory leak that occurred when reporting usage metrics


Created support for sending a message without a body


When sending an Ack without bearer token, report 401 error instead of 500


Report 500 error when trying to create a queue with the same name as the dead letter queue

August 27, 2016

New Features

  • Dead Letter Queue (DLQ) feature enables a queue to receive undeliverable messages.

  • Bug fixes and UI improvements.

The Anypoint MQ API lets you configure a queue to be its own dead letter queue; however, the MQ user interface does not let a queue to be its own DLQ, only the REST API permits this. MuleSoft recommends that you do not do this except for testing purposes because if left in production, this can result in infinite retries thus causing a client application to burn through its monthly usage quota quickly.

Fixed Issues

Issue Description


Ability to use Dead Letter Queues


Correction to encoding logic when sending messages between 200-300KB


Add a new header to messages specifying the encoding
