Use Studio to Configure Tracing Module 1.0

Anypoint Studio (Studio) editors help you design and update your Mule applications, properties, and configuration files.

To add and configure a connector in Studio:

When you run the connector, you can view the app log to check for problems, as described in View the App Log.

If you are new to configuring connectors in Studio, see Use Studio to Configure a Connector. If, after reading this topic, you need additional information about the connector fields, see the Tracing Module Reference.

Create a Mule Project

In Studio, create a new Mule project in which to add and configure the connector:

  1. In Studio, select File > New > Mule Project.

  2. Enter a name for your Mule project and click Finish.

Add the Module to Your Mule Project

Add Tracing module to your Mule project to automatically populate the XML code with the module’s namespace and schema location and to add the required dependencies to the project’s pom.xml file:

  1. In the Mule Palette view, click (X) Search in Exchange.

  2. In the Add Dependencies to Project window, type tracing in the search field.

  3. Click Tracing Module in Available modules.

  4. Click Add.

  5. Click Finish.

Adding a module to a Mule project in Studio does not make that module available to other projects in your Studio workspace.

Configure a Source

A source initiates a flow when a specified condition is met. You can configure one of these input sources to use with Tracing module:

  • HTTP > Listener
    Initiates a flow each time it receives a request on the configured host and port

  • Scheduler
    Initiates a flow when a time-based condition is met

For example, to configure an HTTP listener, follow these steps:

  1. In the Mule Palette view, select HTTP > Listener.

  2. Drag Listener to the Studio canvas.

  3. On the Listener configuration screen, optionally change the value of the Display Name field.

  4. Specify a value for the Path field.

  5. Click the plus sign (+) next to the Connector configuration field to configure a global element that can be used by all instances of the HTTP listener in the app.

  6. On the General tab, specify the connection information for the listener.

  7. On the TLS tab, optionally specify the TLS information for the listener.

  8. On the Advanced tab, optionally specify reconnection information, including a reconnection strategy.

  9. Click Test Connection to confirm that Mule can connect with the specified server.

  10. Click OK.

Add a Module Operation or Scope to the Flow

When you add a module operation or scope to your flow, you immediately define a specific operation for that module to perform.

To add an operation or scope for Tracing module, follow these steps:

  1. In the Mule Palette view, select Tracing and then select the desired operation or scope.

  2. Drag the operation or scope onto the Studio canvas and to the right of the input source.

Select any Tracing module operation or scope from the Mule Palette view on the right side of Anypoint Studio

View the App Log

To check for problems, you can view the app log as follows:

  • If you’re running the app from Anypoint Platform, the output is visible in the Anypoint Studio console window.

  • If you’re running the app using Mule from the command line, the app log is visible in your OS console.

Unless the log file path is customized in the app’s log file (log4j2.xml), you can also view the app log in the default location MULE_HOME/logs/<app-name>.log.
