Setting server monitors to be in maintenance mode via API

Hi Folks,

Can someone point me to instruction about how to set server monitors to be in maintenance mode via the API? This is probably in the documentation somewhere, but searching for it is a bit tricky because it leads to hits on how to monitor APIs themselves, put those monitors in maintenance mode etc.

Requirement is that we are turning servers in Azure on and off automatically according to a schedule, and would like to extend that to switch off Site24x7 monitoring before switching them off, and re-enable it after switching them back on.

Hi Geordie,

    All the API documentation is found in https://www.site24x7.com/help/api/

Below is the link where you can find documentation to do schedule maintenance via our API.

Thanks for that Jasper. Unfortunately I get "{"error_code":1000,"message":"Internal error."}" in response?
