Maintenance Window

Allows a user to create a schedule to disable all Anomaly Alerts, Whitelist Alerts, Incidents, etc.

Maintenance Window Update API

This API can be used to add or remove a maintenance window for a given system and a given set of instances. No project name needs to be specified; the update is performed on all corresponding projects.

API /api/v1/update-maintenance-window (GET or POST)
Input customerName: the user to run the API as (must be the system owner or an administrator)

licenseKey: the license key of the user specified by customerName

ownerName: the owner of the system to run the API for (must match customerName unless user specified by customerName is an administrator)

input: JSON with the following attributes:

  • systemId: the system key (Refer: How to find the system id?)
  • instanceSet: set of instance names
  • windowStart: the start time of the maintenance window, in milliseconds
  • windowEnd: the end time of the maintenance window, in milliseconds
  • delete: optional; if set to true, will delete the corresponding maintenance window(s) instead of creating them (default is false)
Output JSON object; success=true if the task was successfully sent; otherwise, check message parameter for error information. If success=true, statusKey parameter will also be returned. This string can be used to check the progress of the operation (see below)

Please Note: This schedule will be applicable only to instances in the instanceSet attribute, across all the projects in the system.

Example API call:

customerName user
licenseKey fedcba9876543210fedcba9876543210fedcba98

How to find the system id?

Go to settings and click on the edit icon next to the system name in the list. A pop up opens up where you can read system id.

Checking the status

Input statusKey: the statusKey returned by the API above
Output If corresponding task found, JSON object with following attributes:

  • statusKey: the statusKey given
  • statusState: “success”, “fail”, or “in_progress”
  • statusMessage: error message, or message indicating result

If corresponding task not found, JSON object with following attributes:

  • success: equal to false
  • message: error message
