    Description

      When preparing a heavily used hudson instance for shutdown, there are always
      questions about the "why, how long and what does it mean?". I could easily
      explain it upfront, if i could enter a message when starting the shutdown
      preparation that gets shown additional to the current text.

      Think of it like the "reason for shutdown" textfield on windows servers.

            snorky I think everybody agrees it's useful. Even more, it's not a big deal to implement it. So it just needs a contributor who is ready to deliver it.

            In my previous company we were just using a custom CSS via Simple Theme Plugin to make Jenkins Web UI red and to customize the header in order to warn about maintenance timeframe and the reasons. Then we just used System Groovy scripts to publish the announcements. It was working pretty fine.

            oleg_nenashev I understand perfectly your point. It's just that when reading the thread I had the feeling some people were trying to minimize the need for it.

            Thanks for the workaround also.

            Yes, I would like this feature just to prevent builds from happening at certain  times, such as when the LAN is down, and builds would just fail anyway.  Or we wish to suspend builds for an hour while we change a build process or something.  We would like to say have suspended Jenkins (i.e. is out of service temporarily), and it is not actually really going to shut down.

            It will be automatically included into a next LTS release baseline which is based on Jenkins 2.267 or above. With the current process this release would happen in early april
