There is not a simple tool or embedded feature in Mifos to do a controlled shutdown of the application. The Mifos administrator has no visibility of whether users are actively using the application and must rely on a manual process to do an orderly system shutdown.
This project was completed by Jakub Slawinski and shipped in Mifos 1.5!
As part of our migration of our web presence from Plone to Drupal/JIRA Studio, we're migrating our current wiki, a Plone "Zwiki" format to a more easy to use, standards-compliant Confluence wiki hosted on our JIRA Studio Instance.
This project is now complete thanks to the leadership, long nights, and hard work of Michael Vorburger with support from Raphael Ackermann, Ravi Chinoy, and Adam Lerman.
