The Maintenance Window allows users to temporarily prevent the creation of new alerts from any and all integration source(s). Once an integration is removed from the maintenance window, its normal functionality will begin automatically.
When an integration source is in maintenance, you can use a Maintenance Window to disable the service until its maintenance down time has passed.
Add an Integration to the Maintenance Window
- Go to Administration > Inbound Integrations > select Maintenance Windows
- Click Add Maintenance Window and add details.
