The CloudHub Connector provides the ability to interact with CloudHub from within your Mule application. It provides various operations like starting, stopping, deploying, and updating Mule applications, as well as sending notifications from your Mule application to CloudHub.
For more details on CloudHub, please go through one of my articles, The Power of Anypoint CloudHub With Mulesoft.
Install the CloudHub connector from Anypoint Exchange. You can connect to exchange from Anypoint Studio and search for the CloudHub Connector. Click Install and to install the CloudHub Connector in your studio.

Select Operation from the drop-down and select Create Notification. You need to provide Domain, Message, and Priority.
The domain you set for your application when you first created it.
The message you want your notification to show (i.e., "Hello, World"). In the example below, the notification will simply display a message payload.
The type of notification. Selecting INFO will display an informative message; selecting ERROR will display a red alert message.
This operation in the CloudHub Connector creates a notification message for the domain that the application is currently running on.
Now, we will change the Operation to List application. This operation will return a list of the applications deployed to CloudHub with various details like status, worker size, number of workers, application name, worker type, etc.
The Update application operation is used to update Mule version, worker size, and the number of workers. You can update Auto Restart Monitoring, Multitenanted, Persistent Queues, and Vpn Enabled.
Retrieve Application Logs
The operation Retrieve application logs will read the logs of your application like error, warn, information, etc. You can read the log for a specific period of time. It will provide the log depending on your configuration.
There are many more operations that you can perform using the CloudHub Connector, including:
Create, update, delete, and deploy Mule applications.
Get applications details.
Get, list, and create notifications.
