Managed File Transfer Connector (MFT) for MuleSoft®

Simplify file transfer integrations across the enterprise network

Thru provides MuleSoft with file transfer persistence to guarantee delivery. Files are securely stored in Thru’s cloud until delivered. By using the Thru MFT connector available from the Anypoint Exchange, developers can map persistent file transfer flows to MuleSoft data processing flows for data that requires processing or transformation.

How It Works

The Thru certified connector directly integrates MuleSoft data processing flows with Thru file flows – no coding required:

  • Utilizes the Thru data channel API.
  • Implements a set of simple operations to exchange file data and metadata between MuleSoft and Thru.
  • Handles all file pickup, drop off and exception handling.

Thru and MuleSoft Use Cases

Connect Remote Networks with Central Headquarters

Connect remote networks (e.g., retail point-of-sale) with central headquarters with Thru and MuleSoft. Thru fulfills the file transfer integration and guaranteed file delivery with error handling. MuleSoft flows retrieve files from Thru using the Thru connector. These files can then be merged with other data, transformed and sent to enterprise applications via API calls in the MuleSoft flow.

Integration with Financial Institutions

Exchange financial data such as outbound payments and inbound reports with multiple financial institutions. The Thru® MFT Connector streams data in and out of MuleSoft flows where data is processed.

This manufacturer recently adopted MuleSoft and needed an MFT solution that was cloud-native and could integrate with it.

Thru was chosen because we have both capabilities and can provide easy migration of existing integrations. The manufacturer saved 40% in total operational costs over 3 years and decreased partner onboarding times from weeks to minutes.
