Scheduled maintenance

 Downly allows you to schedule maintenance times by manually creating issues. To schedule maintenance, create a new issue in your Downly repository and add the label "maintenance." The issue body should contain the following HTML comment:


start: 2021-02-24T13:00:00+00:00

end: 2021-02-24T14:00:00+00:00

expectedDown: google, gmail


The "start" and "end" keys are required and should specify the start and end times of the maintenance using ISO datetime format.

If certain endpoints are expected to go down during this time, you can add them to the "expectedDown" list. Downly will not raise an issue if they go down during this period. Similarly, if you expect degraded performance, add the affected endpoints to the "expectedDegraded" list, separated by commas.

Downly will automatically close the issue when the maintenance period ends. Both ongoing and past maintenance events are displayed on the status website.
