Update Mode

Description

This operation enables read-only mode for your ArcGIS Enterprise deployment. It is recommended that read-only mode is enabled whenever you are upgrading your Enterprise deployment to ensure that no data loss or downtime occurs. When read-only mode is enabled, users will still be able to interact with your preexisting content. However, attempts to create or modify any data, such as creating a new user or updating the properties of a feature service, will be blocked. For more information on read-only mode, see Read-only mode in ArcGIS Enterprise.
