The deploy operation deploys a Mule Application. It should be used in deploy workflows.

Properties Management

It is always recommended to externalize any configuration parameters (user names, passwords, URLs etc.). Instead of hard-coding these values inside application code, we recommend creating a properties file for your mule application. Please follow these steps to achieve property replacement in FlexDeploy.

1. Create a properties file in your Mule application (eg:
2. Place values for all the properties for Anypoint Studio local testing. 
3. Use these property keys in your Mule Application instead of hard-coding (eg: ${DB_USERNAME})
4. In FlexDeploy create these properties in your Workflow with the MULE_ prefix (eg: MULE_DB_USERNAME)
5. Provide values to these properties on the Environment Instance page.
6. Specify the Property file name in the Project Properties page (Property File Name to Create)
7. FlexDeploy replaces/creates the property file with the values for the environment it is deploying to.

Deploy operation is compatible with the following types of servers:

FDMULE_TYPENotes Specific to the Mule Type
Anypoint Runtime Manager
Runtime Agent

This operation runs on the Mule server endpoint(s).

In order to deploy an application to an entire cluster, set up multiple instances or endpoints.

The deployment will be run on all of them so the application will be deployed to all of the cluster members.
