The disable subcommand disables a specific check provided in the --check-name parameters.


You can typically use the disable command to stop executing a check you no longer require. The liquibase checks run command does not evaluate disabled checks when you execute it.

If you use Liquibase Community, the execution of checks is limited to five. You can disable and enable available checks to focus on the checks that are most important to you. Liquibase Pro allows you to enable and execute an unlimited number of checks.

Note: To view a list of available checks, run liquibase checks show.

Running the disable command

Run the command specifying your values:

liquibase checks disable --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 disable the check in the checks settings file.

Tip: All commands and parameters use the --kebab-case format in the CLI environment. This is the format Liquibase recommends for best results. If your preference is camelCase, it will still work in the CLI.
