The mark-next-changeset-ran-sql command is a helper command that inspects the SQL Liquibase will run while using the mark-next-changeset-ran command.


The mark-next-changeset-ran-sql command is used to inspect the raw SQL before running the mark-next-changeset-ran command, so you can correct any issues that may arise before running the command. Liquibase uses the raw SQL to mark the next changeset you apply as executed in your database and to keep that changeset in the changelog as a record assuming that it has already been deployed.

Running the mark-next-changeset-ran-sql command

To run the mark-next-changeset-ran-sql command, specify the driver, classpath, and URL in the Liquibase properties file. For more information, see Create and Configure a File. You can also specify these properties in your command line.

Then run the mark-next-changeset-ran-sql command:

liquibase mark-next-changeset-ran-sql

Note: Enter the name of the changelog that you want to use in place of mark-next-changeset-ran-sql and include your database type in place of oracle if you use the .sql file format.
