Setting Deployment Blackout Dates

A blackout is set per environment, per application. Once set, no deployments or snapshots can be scheduled to occur in that environment. Any previously scheduled deployments to the environment will fail if they fall within the blackout date you set.

To set up a blackout:

  1. In Deployment, in the global menu, click Schedule and then select Blackout.
  2. In the Add Blackout wizard, select an application for which to set the blackout.
  3. Select an environment for which to set the blackout.
  4. Select the date and time range for which you want the blackout to remain in effect. Optionally, you can enter a name for the blackout.
  5. Click Submit.
In the timeline, the blackout dates now have a black bar to indicate a blackout has been set. Click the bar to edit, delete, or view the details of the blackout.
