What is MuleSoft? MuleSoft is a unified, hyperautomation platform that gives IT and business teams the tools to transform any experience or process. Reading about the power of MuleSoft is one thing, but now you can try it out for yourself with Trailhead.

For those new to MuleSoft, the hands-on exercises will build your understanding, increase your awareness of API best practices, and improve your confidence.

For example, in Integrate Multiple Salesforce Orgs with MuleSoft Anypoint Platform, you’ll learn to set IP ranges for your users to log in from. You’ll get hands-on and define IP address restrictions for profiles, learning how to deny logins from any other IP addresses. 

Instead of reading documentation, you get step-by-step instructions on how to navigate the System Administrator profile and edit the Login IP Ranges.

A Trailhead page shows step by step directions showing how to set login IP ranges.

When you’re ready, Trailhead will check your work and tell you if there’s anything you missed with a note above the Check Challenge button such as, “Challenge not yet complete… We can’t find the expected Login IP Range associated with the System Administrator profile.”

A Trailhead page shows an error message saying “We can’t find the expected Login IP Range associated with the System Administrator profile.”

Get more feedback with Enhanced Quizzes

Trailblazer feedback is at the heart of Trailhead, and we’ve heard from you that you learn technical skills best when you can get your hands on the product, so we’re excited to hear what you think about MuleSoft’s hands-on challenges. We’ve also heard that you want more clarification on why an answer is correct or incorrect. In the spirit of continuous innovation, we’re thrilled to share another new feature based on your feedback: Enhanced Quizzes. 

Imagine you’ve started your MuleSoft learning journey by learning about API Basics. You take the first quiz and see that one of your answers is wrong, but you’re not sure why. Now, with Enhanced Quizzes, you’ll get more information on the answer you chose and why it was correct or incorrect. You’re not only getting deeper information but also reinforcing the key concepts and increasing your retention. You take the quiz again, and the points, badge, and knowledge are yours. Cue the confetti!

A Trailhead page shows a quiz question with four possible answers. The answer “set of instructions” is selected, and it shows text saying “Incorrect: Although APIs allow systems to send data and information to one another, they aren’t simply a set of instructions.”

So get hands-on with MuleSoft, learn more with Enhanced Quizzes, and start building your skill set today!
