Stop azure deployed time triggered webjob

Deanna Delapasse 11 Reputation points

I've read that the "proper" (debatable) way to stop a scheduled webjob is to get to scm and delete the settings.job file. However, my project is deployed as a zip through devops so I can't delete files. Trying gives 409.

I also can't delete the job. Portal tells me it's deleted, but it's not.

I've tried stopping the app service but the jobs keep running. What are the other options?
