Description Dan Dascalescu 2019-01-11 15:04:50 UTC
1. Create a spreadsheet with an external link
2. Set the external link to update every automatically every X seconds
3. Save and close the spreadsheet
4. From the security settings, disable automatic updating for external links, so that you see the top info bar saying "Automatic update of external links has been disabled."
4. Re-open the document
5. Wait X+1 seconds
6. Attempt to close the document. note the prompt asking whether to save or not, but no modifications have been made to the spreadsheet, because the setting to autoupdate links is disabled.

Is what has "changed" the timestamp of the last run, perhaps?

Link still updates despite automatic updates off

Yes, I still see this behavior in

As seen in the yellow banner of the screenshot, behind the menu: "Automatic update of external links has been disabled", I've disabled automatic updates.

However, if I wait longer than the update frequency, the Edit menu will show "Undo: update link".

Dear Dan Dascalescu,

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.

If you have time, please do the following:

Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.

Please DO NOT

Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not 
appropriate in this case)

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from https://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/

2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword
