You can take assignments offline for maintenance and bring them back online using the Edit Assignment Mode setting. Setting an Assignment to offline mode will prevent users from logging into the assignment desktops/applications. The setting also allows you to configure a custom maintenance notice for the assignment.

You can perform the following tasks using the Edit Assignment Mode setting.

  • Take an assignment offline:

    1. On the Assignments page, select the assignment and click the Edit Assignment Mode button at the top of the page.

      The Edit Assignment Mode dialog appears.

    2. Change the Assignment Mode setting to Offline.

    3. If desired, enter a custom notice in the Maintenance Notice text box.

      If you do not enter a custom notice, users will see the default notice.

      Note:

      At this time the custom maintenance notice appears only in the legacy Desktop Portal. Users launching through the HTML Access portal or through the Horizon Client directly will always see the default notice.

    4. Click Save.

  • Bring an assignment online:

    1. On the Assignments page, select the assignment and click the Edit Assignment Mode button at the top of the page.

      The Edit Assignment Mode dialog appears.

    2. Change the Assignment Mode setting to Online.

    3. Click Save.
