Maintenance Page

Hi All,

I just want to throw up a static, simple "Maintenance" or "Outage" html page for when we do upgrades (tonight we're doing a database security patch/reboot). So far all the standard tricks haven't worked.

TIA

    Found the very SIMPLE trick πŸ˜‰

    Instead of using a file named "outage.htm", the file should be named a IIS standard, "app_offline.htm". Locate it in the CiresonPortal root. Rename or delete and you're back.

    @Brian_Winter, you can setup a custom Landingpage and activate it during your maintenace under navigationproperties.


    There are some tutorials how customize it.

    e.g https://community.cireson.com/discussion/4529/custom-home-page

    We've actually done this for our End Users and Analysts. Problem with this is you have to change the CustomHome.js file, the SettingsItem DefaultHome for EndUser and Analyst and doesn't take into account email or saved links to individual work items. I am looking for something to intercept and load right at the initial IIS document load.

    @Brian_Winter , setup a new Homepage in IIS and change DNS during maintenace.

    Hi @Steffen_Dobritz , thought about this too, but

    1) we'd have to coordinate with another team to update the DNS (us portal admins only control our little space. There's another group that controls DNS and certificates)

    2) the site is secured so we'd have to mutz around with the certificate.


    Just need something quick (today's outage will only be 5-10 minutes). Already have an "outage.html" page sitting out there, so just need a setting/script to switch the default load behavior to the static page.

    @Brian_Winter, change bindings in IIS instead DNS?

    Or

    Admin Sttings -> Header & Footer Script Settings
