Is it possible to pause an entire library?



We have created a library that contains the most important sensors for a customer of us. If we have to do some maintenance for this customer (a server restart for example) it's very annoying that every sensor will be down for a while because we use notification triggers, our mailbox will get spammed every time we restart a server.

Is it possible to pause an entire library to avoid sending notification triggers? It would be very useful to pause the library before we do any maintenance.

thank you very much for your KB-Post. I'm very much afraid it is not possible to pause a Library. But of course, this is a good point! I will add it to the wish list. Maybe other users agree with this, and add their votes for it here!

best regards.

Thanks for your reply. I really hope that users have the same isue so we can maybe use this feature in the future. It would help us a lot.

Setting up alerting on a library group level is a good way to go as it allows you to disable alerting for the whole group, by setting each notification to "None" and restore afterwards.
