- Repeat this process for all the projects on the appliance
- Modify and Publish the project to the Appliance:
- Open the projects one by one in the desktop version of Studio
- For all the endpoints that are using Secure Connector, uncheck the option ‘Endpoint Runs Behind Firewall’ in the endpoint configuration
