Change of web address to SOAR Login from Monday 14th October 2013

Posted Date: 14 Oct 2013

Please update bookmark!

What's changing?

The web address of SOAR login is changing.  The new address will be (from lunch time onwards on Monday 14th October 2013):

https://online.appraisal.nes.scot.nhs.uk

If you have the old address bookmarked (scottishappraisal.scot.nhs.uk), you will need to update this.

Why the change?

We are currently working on pulling all our web resources into one domain (www.appraisal.nes.scot.nhs.uk) for easier management and maintenance.  The SSL certificate is due for renewal at the end of the month, so this presented us with a timely opportunity to change the web address at the same time.

A SSL certificate (which requires annual renewal) allows and ensures a secure connection when logging into SOAR.

Will the old address still work?

Yes, the domain name (scottishappraisal.scot.nhs.uk) will continue to work for some time yet as we move to the new domain (www.appraisal.nes.scot.nhs.uk).  However, you will most likely receive a security warning.  Simply ignore it and click Yes / OK / Continue if it comes up.

What if I get a security warning message?

After Monday (14th Oct) lunch time you should not receive any warning messages when logging into SOAR.  If you do, simply ignore and click Yes / OK / Continue if it comes up.

Thanks everyone for your continued support during this time, and apologies for any confusion this may cause.
