Obviously, but in our use case we can't because the research institute I
am working for has deigned a portal which integrates Jenkins with other
services. It seems the integration has been done in a way which makes it
fragile, so that an upgrade of the Jenkins server with out a
corresponding update of the portal may break the whole thing.
I find it a pity because I'd really prefer to just update, but it seems
in this situation it is simply not the best thing to do and we have to
let the service in charge of continuous integration here manage the
upgrades, hence the idea to disable the notifications, to avoid that a
future admin of our Jenkins instance, not aware of this, updates and
So after some experimenting, it seems this property is not exactly what
we need. To give an example, if an administrator of a Jenkins instance
installs a new plugin on the instance, then a connectin to the update
center will be done and the data about new updates will become available
and the message inviting to update Jenkins itself will show up again.
Given the way Jenkins is used here, what we would really need would be a
way to allow plugins to be upgraded from within the Interface butt at
the same time not permit the admins to update Jenkins' core.
Can anybody think of a way to achieve this, please?
Go to Manage Jenkins> Configure System> Administrative monitors configuration and uncheck Jenkins Update Notification box
and save the settings and refresh jenkins page. Now you should not see the jenkins new version update notification.
