Valid since:
XL Deploy 5.0.0

XL Deploy 5.0.0 and later includes a maintenance mode feature that allows administrators to prevent users from starting new deployments and other tasks, so the XL Deploy server can safely be restarted.

Note that:

  • When you enable maintenance mode, deployments that have already started will be allowed to finish. You can use the Task Monitor to view deployments that are in progress.
  • While maintenance mode is enabled, the admin user can continue to start new tasks.
  • Maintenance mode does not prevent scheduled tasks from starting.

To enable maintenance mode:

  1. Click Admin in the top bar.
  2. Go to the Maintenance tab.
  3. Click Enable maintenance mode.

Disable maintenance mode

To disable maintenance mode and allow users to start new deployments:

  1. Click Admin in the top bar.
  2. Go to the Maintenance tab.
  3. Click Disable maintenance mode.
