Setting a Maintenance Window

The default maintenance window is 10:00–14:00 but you can change it if needed. To prevent service interruption, set the maintenance window to off-peak hours. Before calling this API:


  • This function for setting an maintenance window is still in the open beta test (OBT) phase. To use it, contact customer service.
  • You can configure a maintenance window only for restarting a DB instance, changing an instance class, or upgrading the minor version of a DB instance.
  • The specification change and patch upgrade that have been performed during the maintenance period cannot be performed immediately. The instance can be restarted immediately.
  • You can cancel a task to be executed.
  • Changing the maintenance window will not affect the timing that has already been scheduled.
  • The maintenance window cannot overlap the time window configured for backups. Otherwise, scheduled tasks may fail.
  • During the maintenance window, the scheduled task is scanned and executed every 10 minutes. If the task is delivered near the end of the maintenance period, the task may fail to be scanned and the execution is canceled.
