Upcoming downtime beginning November 18th

Community Team



As a part of the upcoming renovations in the community, the NI Community will experience intermittent outages beginning on November 18th. This maintenance window is necessary to complete the the migration of the NI User Group Community onto the platform currently used to host the NI Discussion Forums. The full timeline is as follows:


  • Starting on Friday, November 18th, user groups, blogs, and documents will be migrated from the NI User Group Community to the platform that currently hosts the NI Discussion Forums. The NI User Group Community will go offline and will no longer be available starting on November 18th.
  • On Monday, November 21st, the NI Discussion Forums may be temporarily unavailable at some points throughout the day. The forums will be made read-only during the day in order to complete the migration.
  • At the end of that Monday, November 21st, the platform hosting the NI Discussion Forums will additionally host the user groups, blogs, and documents previously held on the NI User Group Community.

When all of these stages are complete, we will have a single, unified NI Community!
