Button for Maintenance mode / Automatic Maintenance page / Notification for end users when the portal is under update/upgrade
Automatically provision or press of a button, deploy availability set of webserver which would state that the portal is under maintenance and point the portal's own FQDN towards that availability set public IP + also close the ports for API/Powershell for Tenant users. After the update either automaticly or manually remove the availability set and point the portal address to correct place.
Thank you for your feedback. This is currently under review.

I run out of votes, but this would be a requirement!
ofcourse we need to inform our end customers that there will be maintenance break and also inform them, that they are not allowed to provision new machines / availability sets etc during the maintenance break.. But.. We all know how it would end up eventually.. Someone will deploy something anyway there.. ;)
