    Note: don't forget to regenerate the pull rollout packages if any is in use in the environment.

    - select the rollout config and go to the sub node "Servers"  
    - select the rollout server on which the pull is published  
    - right click on "Status" and click on "Generate Rollout Package" 
      

    2- Update the configuration of the existing agents: 
    - import the operational rule attached to this case
