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 OSx.

Although the steps to solve these performance issues vary depending on your antivirus software, a typical solution is to either whitelist 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 7.2 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.

Workspace Compatibility

Projects created or updated with Studio 7.2.0 are not compatible with 7.1.x due to some improvements with the management of the mule-artifcat.json file. The content of the file was reduced and part of the content used to be required by Studio 7.1.x.
To fix this issue you only need to update Studio to the latest 7.2.x version available. See Updating Workspaces for more information.

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

Known Issues

  • 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.

  • Copybook import file not copied to project.

  • Debugger: payload shown while debugging is partial but there is no way to view the rest of the payload.
