checks enable command

The enable subcommand enables a specific check provided in the --check-name parameters.


You can typically use the checks enable command to start or continue executing the disabled check. The liquibase checks run command evaluates enabled checks when being executed.

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

Running the checks enable command

Run the command specifying your values:

liquibase checks enable --check-name=ChangesetCommentCheck

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.

The command will enable the check in the checks settings file. To execute the check, use the checks run command.
