In the week we are going to start enforcing HTTPS-only access on all LR services, as directed by the US Department of Education. Although HTTPS connections have been available on the LR servers all along, access over port 80 was still the norm in use by most consumers.

As a move in this direction, the sandbox and goOpen.sandbox servers have both been updated to force HTTPS. Please take a few moments to test any applications you have that publish to or consume from LR services to verify that everything is still working for you. Most applications should continue to function, simply redirecting to the new end points, though we suggest updating to use HTTPS protocol for all access.

Keep in mind that HTTPS is already enabled and functioning on all LR servers, sandbox and production (node01, node02, goOpen), so you can update your service endpoints to use HTTPS immediately. We will be updating the LR production servers to force HTTPS on or after Sunday, January 28th.

Please let me know if you run into any issues, or if you need additional time to test your application before the change over. All feedback is appreciated. ... .joe
