Rest Api Support For Up.time

I have found the documentation for API detailed here http://docs.uptimesoftware.com/display/UT/API+Reference

 

I am curious of two things.

 

1.) Is this the latest documentation in reference to the Up.Time API? and

 

2.) Is there intention to enable more POST methods in the future for API abilities such as 

  •    Put Element into maintenance / take element out of maintenance 

  •    Put service monitor into maintenance / take service monitor out of maintenance

 

We are looking to automate patching, and part of the process would preferably be placing an element into maintenance mode in an automated fashion. 

 

Is there support for this in the API?

Is it on the road-map to incorporate features such as this in the future?

Are there any other means to perform autonomous functions such as this, other than pre-setting defined maintenance windows manually thru the interface?

 

Thanks!!!
