Monitoring Maintenance and Outage Events

This topic describes how to use the Maintenance & Outages page for partner accounts and managed users.

The Maintenance & Outages page allows you to monitor events that impact your services, including current, scheduled, and past events. By staying informed about maintenance activities and service outages, you can plan effectively around scheduled maintenance and provide faster responses during unplanned outages.

Event notifications for service maintenance and outages are sent via email and displayed on the Maintenance & Outages page. On the Maintenance & Outages page, you can quickly access these events and drill down to see the affected services. The maintenance and outage events data automatically refreshes every five minutes, ensuring you have the most up-to-date information.

For partner and managed accounts, access to the Maintenance & Outages page is available to both partners and managed accounts. If you, as a partner, want to monitor events for your managed accounts, switch from a partner account to a managed account and access the Maintenance & Outages page.
