    What change should I make so that WSDL url will have https instead of http ? 

    This is service side configuration.

          <service name="Service.IService">

          <basicHttpBinding />
        <client />
              <serviceThrottling maxConcurrentCalls="5000" maxConcurrentInstances="2147483647" maxConcurrentSessions="5000" />
              <serviceMetadata httpGetEnabled="true" />
              <serviceDebug includeExceptionDetailInFaults="true" />
        <serviceHostingEnvironment multipleSiteBindingsEnabled="true" />
