checks delete command

The delete subcommand allows you to delete a copy of a dynamic check from the checks configuration in the checks settings file.


You can typically use the checks delete command to remove checks you have made in error or checks you no longer need to keep your checks configuration concise and maintainable.

You cannot delete static checks and parent dynamic checks used to create copies of checks.

Note: To see the list of available checks, run liquibase checks show.

Running the checks delete command

The command is interactive, and you need to follow the CLI output messages to execute it:

  1. Run the command specifying your values:

    liquibase checks delete --check-name=TableColumnLimit1

    Note: If you have a checks settings file customized for a specific environment or project, you need to pass that using the --checks-settings-file parameter. If you do not include this parameter, Liquibase uses the default settings file – liquibase.checks-settings.conf.

  2. Confirm that you want to do the change.

The command will update the checks settings file.
