doctl databases maintenance-window update <database-id> [flags]




This command allows you to update the maintenance window for the specified database cluster.

Maintenance windows are hour-long blocks of time during which DigitalOcean performs automatic maintenance on databases every week. During this time, health checks, security updates, version upgrades, and more are performed.

To change the maintenance window for your database cluster, specify a day of the week and an hour of that day during which you would prefer such maintenance would occur.
