How to Disable Azure DevOps Pipeline Temporarily

If you have problems with your Azure DevOps pipeline or need to disable it temporarily, there is a way to do this.

In this blog post, we will walk you through the steps of disabling your Azure DevOps pipeline. Remember that this is only a temporary solution and should not be used for long-term issues. Let’s get started!

Disable Azure DevOps Pipeline

The first step is to open the Azure DevOps portal. Once you have opened the portal, select your project and then go to the Pipelines page and select the pipeline.

In my case, the pipeline is called Build, and I will click on the pipeline’s options and click on Settings on the right corner, as shown in the screenshot below.

I will set the “Processing of new run requests” from the options page to disabled.

This action will stop new builds from being triggered by commits requests.

Your Azure DevOps pipeline will now be disabled. Keep in mind that this is only a temporary solution, and should not be used for long-term issues. If you need to re-enable your pipeline set the option to Enabled.
