Modify a Remote Service

When you edit a remote service:

  • To remove a remote service from a location (but not delete it from the platform), edit it and click the red x button beside the location. 
  • To change the location of the Appliance manager or the Business process manager, you must replace these remote services in the location. To do this, edit the remote service and enter the URL for the replacement remote service(s). If you change the Appliance manager, you must maintain the same NFS repository

Delete a remote service

To delete a remote service, first remove it from any locations where it is in use. If you wish to delete an Appliance manager or a Business process manager remote service, you must replace it in the location where it is in use or delete the datacenter or public cloud region.
