      Since I am new to BTP .

      I am assuming , within those windows , when we try to log in ABAP environment from eclipse .We will get an error or lets say any API developed using ABAP Environment will not work .

      Is my understanding right .

      But that said I am assuming we will be able to use other BTP services like event mesh , or BAS .

      Is my understanding right ?

      Dear Bodhisattwa Pal,

      during the maintenance window there is no productive use available.
