[Pacemaker] Heartbeat Anything cmdline_options vs. Removing active resource from a group

Attached is an excerpt from our two node (active/passive) Web cluster. We are currently launching uWSGI via the ocf:heartbeat:anything RA (see below).

I would like to make some slight changes to the "cmdline_options" argument on our running cluster... (via "crm configure edit")

Do I need to stop the resWSGI resource first before making this type of change? Does it matter that it's in a co-located resource group? I am not sure if the best approach is to remove it from the group, stop/delete, and re-add with the adjusted cmdline_options or if heatbeat:anything RA allows adjusting said arguments on-the-fly?

Appreciate any advice on best practices when updating against currently running cluster. I have read about setting maintenance-mode=true during planned maintenance like this (to prevent failover, etc), but I wanted to confirm the best approach when changing existing resources vs. adding new ones, especially when grouped.
