#49626 new feature request

Allow plugin developers to opt-out their plugin from auto updates

I would like to request a filter for plugin developers to be able to opt their plugin out from the automatic updates completely.

For example in wp_autoupdates_add_plugins_autoupdates_column_content we could add something like

if ( !apply_filters('wp_autoupdates_enabled_for_plugin', TRUE, $plugin_file)) {

This way a developer of a plugin that for some reason should always be updated manually, can hide this option from the admin for his own good.

Thanks for your ticket @JaworskiMatt!

I think there is a filter that would already be usable for this purpose: `auto_update_{$type}`.

add_filter( 'auto_update_plugin', function ( $update, $item ) {
        if ( $item->plugin === 'your-plugin/your-file.php' ) {
                return false;

        return $update;
}, 10, 2 );
