Places the application in administration mode so that access to the application is limited to Service Administrators only.

This command is useful to prevent users from working on the application when Service Administrators are performing administrative operations. The application remains in administration mode until you change it back so that all users can access it.

Use the getApplicationAdminMode command to check the current status of the environment.
