Inbound Outbound Properties

In this “Inbound Outbound Properties” tutorial of Mule 4 we will look on how we can set and modify Mule Inbound and Outbound Properties.

In Mule Inbound properties referees to the additional information that comes to an Mule API along with the message body/payload itself. It may consist of inbound Headers, Query Params, URI Params, HTTP method etc.
In Mule Inbound properties are preset by the sender of the message thus cannot be added or modified.

Mule Outbound Properties are headers and properties that Mule API set before ending its request to other external systems.

Inbound Properties
In Mule 3 we used to access inbound properties by #[message.inboundProperties]

Whereas in Mule 4 we access these properties by #[attributes]

We have create a simple project using RAML.
The GET method of the RAML has URI Param – user_id, which can assess by #[attributes.uriParams['user_id']]

Similarly to access Query Param we do it by #[attributes.queryParams['code']]

To view all the Inbound Properties that are received by a Mule API:

Outbound Properties
As in Mule 3 we used to set outbound properties via using Set Property Component.
In Mule 4, outbound properties no longer exist. Instead, the headers or properties (e.g. HTTP headers or JMS properties) that you wish to send as part of a request or message (e.g. HTTP request or JMS message) respectively are now configured explicitly as part of the connector operation configuration. 
To Set the outbound HTTP headers and HTTP status code for a Mule API we need to modify the HTTP Listener Configuration.

    The walls do not have to be perfectly even as a little bit
    more adhesive could be added hollow areas and less high is often a bump.
    An uneven surface with seams and joins is an ideal environment
    for the people microbes and bacteria to lurk willing to wage war on your family’s innards,Finally there’s
    the really depressing bit. It might be moulded and cut to almost any shape,
    integrating holes for sockets and pipes, raised cooling racks

    A person will not test a pack that’s clearly leaking, while they know it will fail, thereby distorting the real profile
    of an production run, while a product will collect the sample
    and report the end result objectively. One must consider if the gas leak detectors were designed as fixed or mobile
    phones, whether their application requires the utilization of electricity, batteries,
    or both and whether or not they are in a position to detect the precise gasses found in particular refrigeration and air conditioning.

    Mold is usually a sign you have an undetected roof leak or you have inadequate roofing ventilation.
