Import an API Specification from a Local File

Anypoint Studio enables you to import a RAML API specification from your local machine and import it either into a new Mule project, or an existing one.

This task only works for RAML types of API specifications.

It is not possible to add a local API specification to an existing Mule project.

  1. In the taskbar at the top of the Anypoint Studio display, select File > New > Mule Project.

  2. Type a name for your project.

  3. Select a Mule runtime engine version.

  4. In the API Specification section, select the From Design Center or Local Files tab.

  5. In the Location field, type the location of your local API, or click the …​ button and select Browse Files…​. You can import either a RAML file or an entire .zip file bundle if your API has schemas and examples.

  6. Click Finish.

Studio scaffolds your API specification. If you choose not to create flows out of your API specification, unselect the Scaffold Flows From These API Specifications checkbox.

You can import more than one API. You can select the API you want to scaffold flows and check the Scaffold selected API specifications checkbox so that Studio generates the flow based on the imported API.
