Maintenance Pages

The Maintenance Pages setting allows you to create a custom maintenance page for each language used in your environment.

The maintenance page is displayed to users when the JSS is starting up or being upgraded under the following conditions:

  • When using Self Service for macOS

  • When using the Self Service web clip

  • During enrollment

A maintenance page configuration is preconfigured in the JSS for each of the following languages: English, French, and German. When a computer or mobile device has a preferred language set on it, it displays the maintenance page configuration that corresponds with that language. The English version of the maintenance page is displayed if the computer or mobile device does not have a preferred language set on it.

In addition to the language, the message and the graphic displayed on the maintenance page can be customized. The preconfigured maintenance page message is “We’ll be back.” You can use Markdown to format the maintenance page message and image.

For information about Markdown, see the following Knowledge Base article:

The screen shot below shows the English version of the default maintenance page.
