Extend the date options on Ops Console and provide the limit date of disrutive maintenance.

a) Administrator set only three choices in about one month. I want to extend from one month to few months(over 3 months).

b) A disruptive maintenance was notified before few days of limit date. Customer can not adjust the schedule because of sudden event but Bluemix Operation team said they must apply it with in few days.

    Please explain a bit more in detail the two items above with the specific use case(s) this applies to.

    Currently, we allow customers a reasonable amount of time to pick and schedule their disruptive maintenance. You seem to be calling out two separate cases.

    The first one is to allow the customer to schedule these further out than we allow today (?). The second one seems to be the case where an emergency fix needs to be applied but you nevertheless require the customer to be able to require a minimum warning time (?). Can you please confirm and add detail?
