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).
Solved! Go to Solution.
I had missed that this is possible now, very good to know! That was requested in many projects I've done.
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.
e.g. Tag values and meaning
