Anypoint Platform: API-Led Connectivity


This introductory instructor-led course is for anyone and everyone involved in an Anypoint Platform project who wants to get hands-on experience learning what Anypoint Platform is and how it is used to design, build, deploy, and govern APIs and integrations. Students do not write any code. This course is not for developers and architects who are going to take the Anypoint Platform Development: Fundamentals course or the self-paced MuleSoft.U Development Fundamentals course, which include this content and much more. A downloadable data sheet for the course can be found here.


1.5 days in-person or online


  • Understand what API-led connectivity is and its benefits
  • Use Anypoint Platform to take an API through its complete lifecycle: design, build, deploy, manage, and govern
  • Define an API with RAML, the Restful API Modeling Language, and make it discoverable by creating an API Portal for it and adding it to the Anypoint Exchange
  • Build an API implementation with Anypoint Studio that connects to a database and is transformed to JSON using DataWeave
  • Deploy the API implementation to the cloud and then create and deploy an API proxy for it that governs access


  • A basic understanding of data formats such as XML and JSON
  • A basic understanding of typical integration technologies such as HTTP, REST, and SOAP

Setup requirements

  • A computer with at least 4GB available RAM, 2GHz CPU, and 4GB available storage
