Administrators can configure notifications that communicate service interruption to users. Admins will create a banner to notify users when the system is planning maintenance or is currently impacted by an incident. The banner communicates the incident start time, scheduled end time (optional), and a link for more details (also optional). Users will see the banner if they are logged-in during the incident or during the configured notification window.
