### Hosting LFS objects externally
It is possible to host LFS objects externally by setting a custom LFS url with `git config -f .lfsconfig lfs.url<project>.git/info/lfs`.

LFS can be disabled for a project by Owners and Masters using the [Project API](../../api/
curl --request PUT \
--url<PROJECT_ID> \
--header 'Private-Token: <YOUR_PRIVATE_TOKEN>' \
--data 'lfs_enabled=false'
Note, `<PROJECT_ID>` can also be substituted with a [namespaced path](../../api/
