Abiquo can display a notification of a planned maintenance window to all users. Users can acknowledge the popup and request that the platform does not display it again, and this preference is stored in cookies.
To display the additional maintenance information, the user can click on the Help "?" button in the top left-hand corner of the popup. This will open a link that the administrator can configure.
The platform also displays a maintenance notice link at the bottom of the screen.
By default, the maintenance window in the UI will have a status of scheduled, in progress, or finished. The platform determines this status automatically from the dates given below.
To customize the maintenance states, change the UI labels for "maintenance.status". For example, to change the "scheduled" label to "planned", modify the label text as follows: "maintenance.status.not_started" : "planned". For details of how to create custom UI labels, see Abiquo UI Client Language Configuration.
