Option to turn off update notifications

Please, i don’t need a notification in my taskbar, complete with sound when one of my nc apps have an update available. Nothing more annoying than being in line at the grocery store and i and everyone near me hear an audio notification go off in my pocket, i look at it in case it’s an important text or email… and it’s a notification telling me that there’s an update to my fulltextsearch extension.

You can install a cron job every hour:

occ app:update --all

which is installing the app updates automatically and don’t bother you again with the notifications.

@Sanook thanks. Can you tell me how to setup that cron job from within the Nextcloud container?

somtehing like this is updating the Nextcloud apps every hour automatically:

crontab -u www-data -e

8 */1 * * * php /var/www/nextcloud/occ app:update --all

@Sanook sorry to keep bugging you, I appreciate your help. This is what I get:

crontab -u abc -e 8 */1 * * * php7 /config/www/nextcloud/occ app:update --all
crontab: unrecognized option: all

Where did I screw it up?

I have put the occ command into a script and cron is calling the script

this workaround might be helpful for some, I wouldn’t want updates to be installed automatically whenever they land.

So please: Offer an option to deactivate notifications on app updates.
