Issue/Introduction

The customer noticed that when they send a job that contains a package, it is failing to download the package on their Cloud-Enabled Management (CEM) machine.

The errors that we see in regards package download are:

Entry 1:

We reviewed the Internet Site Server configuration under Site Server Settings and we noticed that the Global Package Service Settings didn't have "Publish HTTPS codebase (provided an SSL certificate is installed)" option selected for Published Codebase Types.
After selecting that option and requesting new configuration on that Site Server, the desired packages started downloading just fine.

Cause

We saw that the links that they were trying to access were:

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

UNC and HTTP paths were given, which doesn't work on CEM mode. We are expecting HTTPS links to be available.

We modified the HTTP link (to be HTTPS) and tried it from the actual gateway and it worked (we were able to access the page):
