markUnused

Note: This is a Liquibase Pro Change Type, so you need a Liquibase Pro License Key to use it.

The markUnused Change Type is an Oracle-specific Change Type that marks a column as unused. The markUnused Change Type helps to avoid database slowdowns caused by dropping a populated column.

Uses

You can typically use the markUnused Change Type to mark columns as unused rather than dropping them immediately, which allows you to decide the best time to drop those columns.
