Blackouts and postponing tasks during backouts

Hi

We are really new and not even using Xebia Labs XL Release and XL Deploy in productions yet.  I have been looking into the use of blackouts and postponing tasks during blackouts.  I see it is easy enough to set blackouts on the calendar, and on tasks the option is to check or leave unchecked 'postpone during blackout'.  It doesn't seem like there is a way to have specific tasks follow specific blackouts, seems like all tasks with 'postpone during blackout' checked follow all blackouts.  Since you can have multiple blackouts with different labels, how can you have tasks follow specific blackouts?

Hi Sharon, 

Thanks for reaching out that's an interesting question , and would like to convert this into a Feature Request. It would help if you can as well provide some use cases you foresee this feature can be leveraged in your company.

Best Regards,

Chitrang Natu

Use case:

Through XL Release we would like to set multiple blackout for multiple specific non prod environments so deployments/tasks don't go during the blackout period.

UAT tasks cannot go during a UAT blackout period

PERF tasks cannot go during PERF blackout period

FIT tasks cannot go during FIT Blackout period

Prod Support tasks cannot go doing Prod Support blackout period

Hi, Just wondering your thoughts on this idea?  Is it possible, if possible any estimate on how long it would take?  We need an update so we can decide how we will proceed going forward.

Thank You

Sharon
