What’s New

This version of Anypoint Studio introduces the following features:

  • Validation for the JDK version running in your machine before opening Studio.

  • Integrates APIKIt for SOAP.

This release also focuses on general bug fixes.

Hardware Requirements

  • For most use cases, Anypoint Studio with the 4.1.1 Runtime does not change hardware or software requirements from the previous Studio 7 versions.

  • MuleSoft recommends a minimum of 4GB of free RAM available on a developer workstation. As applications become complex, consider adding more RAM.

  • 4GB of free memory available.

  • 2GHz CPU.

  • 10GB free hard drive space.

Software Requirements



Java Environments

  • Oracle JDK 1.8.0

Operating Systems

  • MacOS 10.12.0

  • Windows (32- and 64-bit) Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 10

  • RHEL 7.0

  • Ubuntu 15.04 or later


Studio comes with Maven 3.3.9 bundled, but you can externally use the versions: 3.3.3 or your own 3.3.9

Running real-time antivirus protection software on your operating system might have a negative impact on Anypoint Studio performance. Although this issue is prominent on Windows, it also occurs on Linux and macOS.

Although the steps to solve these performance issues vary depending on your antivirus software, a typical solution is to either allow or exclude the Anypoint Studio and java executables, the Studio install and workspace filesystem locations, or some combination of both. See examples of solutions for McAfee Viruscan, Windows Defender, and Symantec Endpoint Protection.

Migration Guide

For first time installment, refer to Studio 7.1 release notes for instructions and known issues.

Studio 7.1 only supports Mule 4.x projects. The structure of the project, export format, XML and scripting language are different.
Users must migrate Mule 3 projects to Mule 4 manually, before they can be used in Studio 7. See the Mule migration guide for more information.

Workspaces created using Anypoint Studio 6.x or below are not compatible with Anypoint Studio 7 workspaces.

From version 7.1.1 there is no special migration needed. When opening a previous Workspace which has projects that were created with Studio 7.1.0, and metadata stored in disk, Studio asks you to perform an update to all the projects so that the Metadata Manager can handle the types and to show the types in your project.

Known Issues

  • Studio may fail to generate flows from API definitions that have the 'protocols' node set with a String instead of an Array. When this happens, Studio generates an empty flow without throwing any error to the user.
    You must set the protocols value to an Array.

    For example, use

     protocols: [ HTTPS ]

    Instead of

      protocols: HTTPS

    To be able to see the error message and location of the issue, you must install the latest version of the RAML Editor using the http://studio.mulesoft.org.s3.amazonaws.com/s2/ramleditor/ update site.
    Follow the instructions in the Studio Update Sites documentation.

  • Because the metadata propagation works differently in Studio 7, Datasense might display errors if your DataWeave code has references to unknown metadata either because you didn’t define the metadata before writing your code, or because your flow is still incomplete.
    See Understanding How DataSense Uses Mule Event Metadata and Transform Message Component for more information.

  • Some existing features in Studio 6.x are not yet supported in Studio 7.1: Custom Policies, API Sync, Anypoint Private Cloud.

  • Anypoint Studio uses your configured default browser to display web content such as Exchange and the Runtime Manager UI when deploying an application to Anypoint Platform. If your default internet browser does not display this content correctly, you can configure Anypoint Studio to use a Mozilla/XULRunner runtime environment as the underlying renderer for the Web UI.
    Follow the FAQ: Troubleshooting Issues with Your Default OS Browser for more details.
