Admin unable to edit queries

Hi, this morning I logged on and I am no longer able to edit Metabase SQL queries despite having admin access & permissions to all of our groups. I can see the queries but when I make a change to the SQL and try to run I get " Sorry, you don’t have permission to see that.". It's happening across two databases. I can still run selects on the same tables but not edit.

Hi @leomac
Caused by a reverse-proxy (WAF etc) being too aggressive:

@flamber our Metabase instance is not behind any WAF.. are there any other potential issues?

@leomac Post the URL to your instance. I can guarantee that you are using a WAF, but probably just don't know it.

@leomac You're using CloudFlare, so you have probably some protection settings enabled.
Your Site URL is also not configured correctly in Admin > Settings > General.
And latest release is 0.44.6:

@flamber can you elaborate on what the issue is with the site URL?

@leomac It's http instead of https.
