Create a Load Balancer (Runtime Manager)

logo cloud active logo hybrid disabled logo server disabled logo rtf disabled

You can use Runtime Manager to create a dedicated load balancer (DLB) in your CloudHub environment.


Before creating a load balancer, perform the following:

  • Ensure that your profile is authorized to perform this action by adding the CloudHub Network Administrator permission to the profile of the organization where you are creating the load balancer.

    Similarly, the administrator role of the same organization also provides the authorization required.

  • Create an Anypoint Virtual Private Cloud (Anypoint VPC) in the organization where you want to create a load balancer.

  • Create at least one certificate and private key for your certificate.

Create a Load Balancer

  1. From Anypoint Platform, click Runtime Manager.

  2. Click load balancers, then click Create Load Balancer.

  3. Enter a name for your load balancer.

    The CloudHub DLB name must be unique across all DLBs defined in Anypoint Platform (by all MuleSoft customers). For this reason, you might want to append your organization name to your DLB name.

    Each dedicated load balancer exposes an external domain name where lb-name is the name you provide.

  4. Select a target Anypoint VPC from the drop-down list.

  5. Add any whitelisted classless inter-domain routing (CIDR) as required.

    The IP addresses you specify here are the only IP addresses that can access the load balancer. The default value is

  6. Select the inbound HTTP mode for the load balancer.

    This property specifies the behavior of the load balancer when receiving an HTTP request. Valid values are:

    • Off

      Causes the load balancer to silently drop the request.

    • On

      Accepts the inbound request on the default SSL endpoint using the HTTP protocol.

    • Redirect

      Redirects the request to the same URL using the HTTPS protocol.

  7. Add a certificate.

    1. Click Add Certificate

    2. Add both a public and a private key.

    3. (Optional) Select Support TLS 1.0.

    4. (Optional) Add a client certificate.

      The client certificate is a trusted CA certificate used to verify client certificates.

    5. (Optional) Add URL mapping rules.

      If you add more than one URL mapping rule, order the rules in the list according to the priority in which they should be applied.

      Click Add New Rule, and then specify the input path, target app, output path, and protocol.

    6. Click Save Certificate.

  8. Click Save Load Balancer.
