Can we change HTTP virtual URL into HTTPS virtual URL? If yes, Please let me know how can we do this. Thanks in advance!
You need to add SSL certificate in your VSM. You can do so by edititng your first step (listen step) in the VSM , where you will find the option to add SSL certificate and its corresponding password
Once you deploy it.. You should be able to see SSL enabled in Server Console. Now you can trigger the service using https url.However make sure your request is also sending the same SSL certificate
Do i need to make any changes in local.properties file also after making above changes as suggested by you in VSM or editing a VSM only will suffice the purpose?
Not required. Edit the VSM and redeploy the service.
