Canvas - Maintenance and Downtime 08/31 to 09/01 [Updated]

Posted: 09:11:48, Friday, Aug 23, 2019   Expiration: 09:11:48, Tuesday, Sep 3, 2019

Instructure will be performing maintenance on our Canvas instance Starting Saturday, August 31, 2019 at 11:00 PM CST and lasting until Sunday, September 01, 2019 at 3:00 AM CST. We may experience brief downtime during that period.

This has the potential to impact all Canvas services, including courses in the instructional instance. Users should attempt to schedule any Canvas-related work to avoid this time period.

Please note that this is a separate maintenance event from the smaller UWSA server maintenance event also scheduled for 08/31, which was announced yesterday.

Update 08/27/2019

Instructure issued the following update:

In doing this maintenance in the Beta and Test environments, we've found a way to do the maintenance in a way that should not affect you or your users. There should be no downtime as a result of this maintenance. The maintenance will begin at [11 PM CST] and should be completed by [3:00 AM CST] the next morning.
