Maintenance Mode enables you to reduce alert noise during the scheduled maintenance window. Alerts generated during active maintenance windows would be automatically suppressed and hence, no notifications are generated for those suppressed alerts. One can quickly list incidents that are in the suppressed state by simply filtering them in the Incidentspage.
The User Role associated with the user in the Team must have required permissions to manage Services (ability to manage Maintenance Windows).

On hovering over the service, click Maintenance Mode -> Enable maintenance mode for service.
Select a Start Date and Time, along with End Date and Time.
If you want to set repetition, select the frequency of repetition, and the End Date.
Add as many maintenance windows as you’d like and click Save.
