I want a way to give dev teams the ability to turn their monitors on/off via automation for things like deployments and outages. Managing maintenance windows via the REST API seems to be rather complicated and possibly prone to conflicts when/if several groups deploy at the same time.
I've looked into the TestStatusUpdate SOAP request and that looks like a much simpler solution to turn tests off/on while impacting only the monitors specific to each team. Since they will be responsible for managing their monitors this seems like a logical solution with low impact to other teams or monitors.
Can anyone think of a downside to this approach?
