Design Center in MuleSoft

API Designer helps us to create API Specification in RESTful API Modeling Language (RAML). It supports RAML 0.8 and 1 versions. It also supports OAS 2.0 & 3.0 both YAML and JSON versions (not in our scope). After creating Specification , it can be published to API Exchange so that it is available to your organization.

  • Resource: It is the unique name we give to identify a resource
  • Method: GET , POST , PUT , DELETE , PUT , PATCH etc
  • Request : like Body , queryparams, uriparams, headers.
  • Response: like response Body and response type
  • Http Status: 200,201,400,404,500 etc ..

No two resources can have same name & method!
