These release notes describe functionality that may not have been released yet. To see when this functionality is planned to release, please review What’s new and planned for Dynamics 365 Portal. Delivery timelines and projected functionality may change or may not ship (see Microsoft policy).

Business value

Customers can display a “Website under maintenance” message during routine maintenance or major upgrade activities on their portal.

Maintenance mode lets portal administrators avoid showing intermittent service unavailability errors to end users during portal maintenance that otherwise can impact user satisfaction and portal search rankings.


Portal administrators


This feature provides the ability to:

  • Enable and disable maintenance mode from the portal admin center.
  • Specify a custom message that is shown to portal users when the website is in this mode.
