Anypoint Platform Installation Compatible

US Cloud


EU Cloud


MuleSoft Government Cloud


Anypoint Platform Private Cloud Edition (Anypoint Platform PCE)

See configure Private Cloud Edition in Studio for more information.

Workspace Upgrade Requirements

Anypoint Studio enables you to create and organize projects in workspaces. When you first open Studio, it automatically generates a default workspace to store all your projects. Your Mule application projects might not be fully compatible with workspaces of a different version of Studio.

Projects created with Studio 6.x.x are not compatible with Studio 7 because they are Mule 3 projects.

See Update Workspaces for more information.

Hardware Requirements

  • 8GB of memory

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

  • 2GHz CPU

  • 10GB free hard drive space

Software Requirements

Studio is compatible with the following operating systems and their standard configuration. Using Studio on configurations outside of the supported operating systems can result in unexpected behaviors.

  • Operating Systems

    • macOS 12 through 14

    • Windows 10, Windows 11 (64-bit)*

    • RHEL 9*

    • Ubuntu 18.04 or later LTS

*Windows 11 and RHEL support is based on the Eclipse support matrix. Learn more about Eclipse target environments.

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.

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 Trellix Endpoint Security Threat Prevention, Windows Security, and Broadcom Endpoint Protection.
