Scheduled maintenances are the best way to inform users of upcoming maintenance activity.

The Life of a Maintenance Event

1. Schedule

All upcoming scheduled maintenances are displayed on the status page and in iCalendar subscriptions.

2. Start

Click the Start button when you’re ready to begin the maintenance.

Once a maintenance has begun, it will be displayed on the main status page and the status bar will change to show that a maintenance is actively in progress.

The status will be toggled for each component and container to indicate they are undergoing maintenance.

3. Update(s)

Updates are optional and may be provided throughout the maintenance activity. Notifications are on a per-update basis — Choose to broadcast each update or simply log the updates on the status page.

4. Finish

Click the Finish button when the maintenance has been completed.

Completed maintenances are moved to the history page.
