Edit a Web-Tier Deployment Configuration

You can use the Operations Console to change the configuration and web tier service options of an existing web-tier deployment. For example, you can change the preferred RBA instance and turn on or off the Self-Service Console, risk-based authentication, and dynamic seed provisioning.

If you want to edit the virtual hostname or virtual host port number, see Configure a Load Balancer and Virtual Host.
