Liquibase Build and Test Quality Gate Status

Liquibase helps millions of developers track, version, and deploy database schema changes. It will help you to:

  • Control database schema changes for specific versions
  • Eliminate errors and delays when releasing databases
  • Automatically order scripts for deployment
  • Easily rollback changes
  • Collaborate with tools you already use

This repository contains the main source code for Liquibase Open Source. For more information about the product, see the Liquibase website.

Liquibase Automation and Integrations

Liquibase Open Source has built-in support for a variety of databases. Databases that are not part of Liquibase Open Source require extensions that you can download for free. Here is the full list of supported databases.

Liquibase can be integrated with Maven, Ant, Gradle, Spring Boot, and other CI/CD tools. For a full list, see Liquibase Tools & Integrations. You can use Liquibase with GitHub Actions, Spinnaker, and many different workflows.
