We'd really love to see something like this, a one-click maintenance mode feature, and/or the ability to delegate this feature to limited users such as view-only users or users with view+acknowledge alerts... It would be good to get more granular with this right.

Happy to elaborate more if there's any interest.

I would like to second this request. We need the ability to quickly put multiple servers in and out of maintenance mode, for tasks such as server reboots, critical updates, etc. And the ability to delegate this to different levels of user roles.

Thanks!

I agree, too. End, even better would be to be able to put servers on maintenance through an API...

Thanks

Hi,
Thanks for the feedback, maintenance scheduling is something we're reviewing for potental changes in an upcoming release.

A few points for the short term:

1) You can now delegate maintenance scheduling. If you add a user role that includes 'Services' Add/Edit/Delete, users who are assigned to that role will be able to manage maintenance for whatever servers they are able to see.
2) In up.time 5.3 you can now manage maintenance at the group level, making it a lot easier to bring a bunch of systems into and out of maintenance quickly.


Regards,

David.

Hi,
A little more news here. up.time 6 now has 'maintenance on demand', which means you can take systems in and out of maintenance with 2 clicks without worrying about creating maintenance profiles each time you need to take a system down for unplanned maintenance.

Regards,

David
