Turn off automatic update checks

Is it possible to manage the Nexcloud general settings with a script or configuration profile?

I’d like to change autoUpdateCheck to false but it’s part of the .cfg which lives in the user Library.

There used to be a .plist that we could use to disable automatic updates but that .plist doesn’t exist anymore.


Any suggestions?

Not tested:
'updatechecker' => true,


Thanks for the quick response.

I’m looking to manage the Nextcloud.app on the client (macOS) itself. Or is the app pulling those settings from the server?

Looks like “updatechecker” is now


From client .cfg file. under v2.6.5

Sorry. I thought the update of nextcloud software on the server.
