iThemes Security Extension

Why when Disabling XML-RPC in iThemes Security Extension and applying to sites does NOT change the settings on the sites?

The report looks good to me.

Would you mind opening a private Help Desk ticket so we can collect some additional information & investigate further?

Per your request: Help Desk Ticket #6361has been submit with a screencast and system report.
I chose one very small site with limited plugins to record the screencast, but this is happening across the board. None of 41 sites are receiving updates to WordPress Tweaks from the iThemes security Extension, whether when applying to All sites from the extension or individually from the Site Overview Page.

Kind Thanks.
