Is it possible to define a downtime in Synthetic Monitoring?

Hi,

 

We want to know if it's possible to create a Synthetic monitor (HTTP monitor or Clickpath browser) with a specific downtime period to not execute that monitor on a specific timeframe (after midnight, on weekends, etc).

 

Thanks!

I think, setting up maintenance window along with Disable synthetic monitor execution will work here.

I had missed that this is possible now, very good to know! That was requested in many projects I've done.

@AK is correct @dbusquets. You can set a maintenance window that will suppress the synthetic runs. This will completely prevent that Dynatrace Synthetics from running thus cutting down your usage.

Thank you all for your help and rapid response! 🔝

Besides using a maintenance window, I'm using tags where scripts are activated/deactivated via API calls (any combination of tags can be applied).  For me this works best until a true scheduler is available for Synthetics.
