Maintenance Windows

Some of my VMs are scheduled to be down from (example) day 10 to day 25 of each month (for cost saving reasons).

Setting up maintenance windows for this is really painful - I need to create one maintenance schedule for each day, and I can't clone existing schedules just to change the date part.

Any chance we can get a more sophisticated date selection UI?

Re: Maintenance Windows

Hi ,  

Thanks for bringing this up. Currently, we do not have the option to clone the schedule maintenance.

I can't clone existing schedules just to change the date part.

Can you please elaborate on how you would like to have this feature of cloning the scheduled maintenance. Please tell us if you want to 

1. Clone the schedule maintenance for a month to another month.

2. Clone a particular schedule maintenance to another month by changing the date.

 To configure the schedule maintenance for monitors/monitor groups every month. Please follow the steps to do the same:

1. Login to your Site24x7 account

2. Go to Home > Schedule Maintenance > Click on the Schedule Maintenance button at the top right corner of the page.

3. In the Schedule Maintenance window, under Recurrence Details, set the Frequency as Monthly

4. Select the Set Recurrence to be By Date.

5. In the Start Time field, set the date and time duration for maintenance

Currently, the maximum time duration for the maintenance is 24 hrs. We will update this thread once we start supporting date ranges. 

 

Hope this fulfills your requirement. Let us know for any further queries. 

   

Regards,

Muralikrishnan

I've brought something up like this before:

Would be nice to have the calendar be interactive like how Google calendar, for example, when setting up things, you can select a day range.
