Configure maintenance flyouts

User interface settings include the option “Show maintenance notes”.

How can I as onprem-backend administrator configure and switch on such flyouts to inform my users about upcoming maintenance?

    Hi Carlos,

    Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts. Currently, we’re prioritizing ideas with more community support (votes), but we value your suggestion. If you're still passionate about it in six months, we encourage you to bring it back to the table. Your input is always welcome!

    Hi Carlo, thanks for creating this AHA idea for Instana Self-Hosting.

    We understand that you need self-hosting installations to be able to show maintenance notifications and how this is not possible at the moment as it is done in Instana's SaaS operations. There is definitely value in having that.

    I will make the idea public, so it can gather votes. Also subscribe to the latest updates here as well.
