Deploy set to "none," still running as "auto"


I’m trying to get Ionic Pro “Deploy” working on an app, but I can’t get it to change the update method to something other than “auto.” Originally it was set to “auto” just to make sure the app could see, download and apply the update without needing to write any code to do so manually, but now I’d like to make it run manually.

I’ve tried:

  • Changing the cordova-plugin-ionic “UPDATE_METHOD” value to “none” in both config.xml and package.json
  • Running the “cordova plugin add cordova-plugin-ionic” code again with the “UPDATE_METHOD” variable set to “none”

But the app still automatically downloads and applies the Deploy update at startup.

Any ideas?
