Instructions for Upgrading from ThingWorx 7.4
In ThingWorx 8.0, some services may have a new parameter type. If you create a new service in ThingWorx 8.0 with the same endpoint that was used in an existing service in ThingWorx 7.4 and observe that the services have different input parameters, use these instructions to update the 7.4 service.
1. In ThingWorx 8.0, select the Integration Connector Thing using the service.
2. Select the service that was upgraded from ThingWorx 7.4.
3. Edit the service by temporarily changing the endpoint to a different option. Then change it back to the original endpoint.
4. Save the service.
5. Save the Thing.
