should-run global parameter is a Boolean that determines whether Liquibase commands should run. By default, it is set to
If you use a Servlet Listener with Liquibase, you can set the
should-run parameter to control whether specific servers run Liquibase commands. This can be useful if you do not want to set the
LIQUIBASE_HOST_INCLUDES attributes in your servlet listener, but still need to include or exclude some host names from running Liquibase.
If you are using the JEE CDI Integration for Liquibase, you can use
should-run to stop Liquibase from performing updates when the CDI container boots.
If you are making test runs of an application, you can also use
should-run to enable Liquibase commands on application startup but disable it on test runs.
You can set this parameter in the following ways:
|Liquibase properties file||
|Global flow file argument (example)||
|Global CLI parameter||
JVM system property (JAVA_OPTS Environment Variable)
|Liquibase Environment Variables||
For more information, see Working with Command Parameters.
If you run Liquibase with
should-run set to
false, the output is:
Liquibase did not run because 'liquibase.shouldRun' was set to false
