Using Gravity Forms ‘gform_updates_list’ PHP filter

The gform_updates_list filter modifies the available updates displayed on the Forms -> System Status -> Updates page in Gravity Forms.


add_filter('gform_updates_list', 'your_function_name', 11, 1);

Note: Set the run priority higher than the default of 10 because this filter is also added in the auto upgrade Gravity Forms code, and the list of updates will not be complete unless the filter in the GF code runs before your added filter.


  • $updates (array): An array of plugins displayed on the Updates page.

Remove a plugin from the list of available updates

This example removes a plugin from the list of available updates.

add_filter('gform_updates_list', 'remove_update', 11, 1);

function remove_update($updates) {
    // Remove user registration from the updates list
    foreach ($updates as $id => $update) {
        // Loop through array and create ids for the sub arrays
        // So the user registration plugin can be removed
        if ($update['slug'] == 'gravityformsuserregistration') {
            // Remove it from the main array
    return $updates;
