How do we suppress the traps/syslog messages of AP's during maintenance/upgrade of controller?

The AP's will reboot/bootstrap during maintenance which may generate AP-DOWN/AP-UP traps and flood the syslog servers with log messages.  If "AP Maintenance Mode" is enabled, APs stop flooding unnecessary traps and syslog messages to network management systems or network operations centers during a deployment or scheduled upgrade maintenance. The controller still generates debug syslog messages if debug logging is enabled. After completing the network maintenance, we need to disable AP maintenance mode to ensure all traps and syslog messages are sent out. AP maintenance mode is disabled by default as highlighted below.
