Set up CICD For Mulesoft From Scratch

No slides, just walk along.

Setting up CICD is the necessity for agility in the enterprise.

What you’ll learn

  • Understand Nexus, Gitlab Runner, Mule-Maven-Plugin Role for CICD with LIVE DEMO – No Single Slide.
  • Combine Mule Maven Plugin with Gitlab to automate build and deployment of Mulesoft artifacts..
  • Use Nexus repository to host Mulesoft app artifacts(Jars) and to download them as dependencies in other projects, and use it for proxy other dependencies..
  • You will be running CICD for both – On prem server deployment and Cloudhub Deployment..

Course Content

  • Setting up Environment –> 3 lectures • 21min.
  • Set up Mulesoft Environment and Nexus –> 7 lectures • 23min.
  • Maven – Introduction –> 2 lectures • 21min.
  • Mule Maven Plugin –> 5 lectures • 1hr.
  • Parent Pom file –> 4 lectures • 36min.
  • CICD – Connecting everything what we learned to make pipeline –> 7 lectures • 43min.

Auto Draft


  • Very basic understanding of Mulesoft Required – like hello world app in Mulesoft.
  • Familiarity with basic gitlab commands and maven will help – but we will cover them too..
  • Course will be conducted in Windows environment but it is failrly applicable to any other environments..

Setting up CICD is the necessity for agility in the enterprise.

This requires to understand code repository, automated building of mule applicaitons, automated deployments of mule applicaitons.

In turn to understand above,you need to be clear with “doing something” instead of slides on the topics like “Maven, Maven build profile, Nexus repository”

In this course, you will learn to understand fully setting up CICD on your own. You will become a ‘go to person’ to set up CICD.


No previous experience with Nexus is required.

No previous experience with Apache Maven is required.

Basic faimiliar knowledge with git commands and basic hello-world Mule app will help.


In just a few lectures, you will be building your first automated build and deployment of Mule project!
