Deactivate Manual Job with gitlab gui

Hi we have a manual job in our gitlab pipeline which we want to deactivate from time to time for a few hours or days. At best the deactivation should be possible without changing the yaml files for pipeline configuratin. Is there a possibility to set a variable in the gitlab webbrowser gui which disables the job temporary ?

Yes, you can use Deploy Freeze!

In your manual job, add:

    - if: $CI_DEPLOY_FREEZE == null

Then, to set the times:

  1. Sign in to GitLab as a user with project Maintainer permissions.
  2. Navigate to Project overview .
  3. In the left navigation menu, navigate to Settings > CI / CD .
  4. Scroll to Deploy freezes .
  5. Click Expand to see the deploy freeze table.
  6. Click Add deploy freeze to open the deploy freeze modal.
  7. Enter the start time, end time, and timezone of the desired deploy freeze period.
  8. Click Add deploy freeze in the modal.

Attention! At the moment you can edit or delete freeze periods only through APIs, and not GUI

Thanks @rpadovani for answer, i will try this .
