Azure DevOps: Disable auto update of extensions on Team Foundation Server

You can install Azure DevOps extensions on Team Foundation Server from the Marketplace. And as the publishers push updates to these extensions, the installed extensions on your Team Foundation Server (TFS) also get updated. Some enterprises have a requirement of disabling this auto-update feature, here is how you can do that.

Run the below SQL script on the configuration database of your Team Foundation Server instance, the database is typically named Tfs_Configuration,

UPDATE [Tfs_Configuration].[dbo].[tbl_JobDefinition]
SET EnabledState = 2
WHERE PartitionId > 0 AND JobId = ‘A8F60BD0-BCBA-4343-82B3-FD6B40D657D8’

This script disables the update job which is resposible for auto-updating of extensions.
