    • Maintenance block: You can create one complete maintenance block (start maintenance, action(s), and stop maintenance) and the maintenance block cannot contain any scaling actions
    • Scale in and/or scale out actions: You can only scale in and/or scale out at the end of the action plan but you can create the scaling action(s) in any order (e.g. scale in first, only scale in)
    • Email actions: You can perform an email action at any time, including after scaling actions
    • Platform constraints: For example, to create an instance, the VM must be deployed and powered off 
    • Hypervisor constraints: For example, when using hot reconfigure on ESXi, you cannot decrement CPU or RAM
