clear-checksums

clear-checksums clears all checksums and nullifies the MD5SUM column of the DATABASECHANGELOG table. They will be re-computed on the next database update --changesets that have been deployed will have their checksums re-computed, and pending changesets will be deployed.

Uses

clear-checksums is typically used when there is a [MD5Sum Check Failed] error message and there is a need to clear the checksums from the DATABASECHANGELOG table.

Syntax

To run the clear-checksums command, specify the database driver, classpath, and URL the Liquibase properties file. For more information, see Create and Configure a liquibase.properties File. You can also specify these properties in your command line.

Then run the clear-checksums command:

liquibase clear-checksums

Command arguments

Tip: For best results, specify all commands and parameters in the --kebab-case format in the CLI. If your preference is camelCase, it also works in the CLI.

Attribute Definition Requirement
--url

The JDBC database connection URL. See Using JDBC URL in Liquibase.

Required
--default-catalog-name

Name of the default catalog to use for the database connection

Optional
--default-schema-name

Name of the default schema to use for the database connection. If defaultSchemaName is set, then objects do not have to be fully qualified. This means you can refer to just mytable instead of myschema.mytable.

Tip: In Liquibase v4.23.0+, camelCase for defaultSchemaName works successfully. If you are on an earlier version, camelCase may not work as expected.

Note: The syntax liquibase.command.defaultSchemaName is valid for v4.19.0+. For prior versions, use defaultSchemaName.

Optional
--driver

The JDBC driver class

Optional
--driver-properties-file

The JDBC driver properties file

Optional
--password

Password to connect to the target database.
