Is there a single Unicorn setting which can completely disable unicorn synchronisation for a Sitecore instance? At the moment if I want to turn off synchronisation, I just delete the App_Config\Include\Unicorn folder, but I would like an easier to restore option if possible!

  • you can rename files to .disabled if you want :D – Andrey Bobrov May 19 '17 at 7:33
  • @AndreyBobrov I just wanted to avoid having to rename 8 files and then un-rename them afterwards! – Matthew Dresser May 19 '17 at 8:04
  • you can create a script for that – Andrey Bobrov May 19 '17 at 8:49

It is enough to disable just the Unicorn.config or make a Unicorn folder hidden

  • How do you "disable" the file Unicorn.config? – Don Cheadle Dec 16 '19 at 19:35

    Renaming Unicorn.config to Unicorn.config.disabled gave me an error on startup of the site/every page: Could not find configuration node: /sitecore/unicorn/configurationProvider – Don Cheadle Dec 16 '19 at 20:17

On Sitecore 8.1 I had to disable (rename file to .disabled at the end) these 7 files to fully disable Unicorn and not get errors.

  • Unicorn.AutoPublish.config.disabled
  • Unicorn.config.disabled
  • Unicorn.DataProvider.config.disabled
  • Unicorn.Deployed.config.disabled
  • Unicorn.Remote.config.disabled
  • Unicorn.Tfs.config.disabled
  • Unicorn.UI.config.disabled
