Setting the Daily Maintenance Time (v1)

Use this REST API (v1) to set the daily maintenance window start time.

This topic describes the original version of this REST API. You can also use the simplified v2 version of the REST API. The v2 version contains all parameters in the payload and does not require URL encoding while calling the REST APIs. This makes the v2 API easier to use. The v2 version is backwards compatible.

Use this REST API to set the daily maintenance window time.

Note: To ensure that the use of this API does not interfere with the Oracle requirement for creating backups, this API will not change the maintenance start time if the daily maintenance process did not run in the last 36 hours.

Before using the REST resources, you must understand how to access the REST resources and other important concepts. See About the REST APIs. Using this REST API requires prerequisites. See Prerequisites.

This API is version v1.
