LeaveWeb migration

The LeaveWeb server at Luke Air Force Base is scheduled for migration at 9:30 a.m. EST July 10. The migration will move each base’s local LeaveWeb server to a centralized server located at Wright-Patterson AFB, Ohio. This will make it easier to transfer users from base to base when making a permanent change of station. Due to the migration, LeaveWeb access through the portal will be down for 24 to 72 hours from the date of migration. Members may use the direct link to LeaveWeb, https://leave.Luke.af.mil, to schedule leave during the migration period. For more information, call the 56th Comptroller Squadron at (623) 856-7028.
