Quality Checks

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

Liquibase quality checks allow you to analyze your changelogs, changesets, and SQL for specific commands and patterns that require close review early in the development life cycle. This feature can be integrated into your build and deployment automation to prevent non-compliant changes from entering the pipeline.

Quality checks help you customize the types of checks to fit the needs of your organization and let you do the following:

  • Better secure your database by getting immediate notice that user and role privileges are being modified.
  • Prevent data loss and corruption.
  • Enforce internal standards and best practices to ensure that only high-quality, compliant changes are added to your projects.
  • Quickly, consistently, and easily validate your changes from the local development environments.
  • Integrate checks into automated workflows to provide quality gates for database changes in automation.

Quality checks have been tested for Oracle, SQL Server, PostgreSQL, MySQL, and MariaDB, but may be compatible with any relational database supported by Liquibase.

Quality Checks have three components

  • The static and dynamic checks.
    Learn more about static and dynamic checks here: List of Quality Checks
  • The checks command and sub-commands
  • The checks settings file that defines the configurations and parameters

All checks work in the command line and in automation. The command line is interactive and allows the configuration of dynamic checks.

Quality checks are run via Quality Checks Commands, which have both required and optional Quality Checks Command Arguments which can customize your checks even further.
