mongocli atlas maintenanceWindow defer

The maintenanceWindow defer command defers scheduled maintenance on an Atlas project for one week. You can also defer a maintenance window through the Atlas UI or API.

Important
Maintenance Window Considerations
Urgent Maintenance Activities
Urgent maintenance activities such as security patches cannot wait for your chosen window. Atlas will start those maintenance activities when needed.
Ongoing Maintenance Operations
Once maintenance is scheduled for your cluster, you cannot change your maintenance window until the current maintenance efforts have completed.
Maintenance Requires Replica Set Elections
Atlas performs maintenance the same way as the maintenance procedure described in the MongoDB Manual. This procedure requires at least one replica set election during the maintenance window per replica set.
Maintenance Starts As Close to the Hour As Possible
Maintenance always begins as close to the scheduled hour as possible, but in-progress cluster updates or unexpected system issues could delay the start time.

If the specified project has no upcoming scheduled maintenance, this command returns an error.
