Schedule Maintenance Downtime

To reduce unnecessary noise, you can define Maintenance Windows for scheduled downtimes, such as during server or software upgrades.

During a maintenance window, events continue to be correlated into alerts and labeled as 'In Maintenance' but you can choose not to group them into Situations. If an alert under a maintenance schedule receives an event, it is tagged as such.
