strict is a global Boolean attribute that specifies whether Liquibase enforces certain best practices and proactively looks for common errors. The default value is
If you set
true, Liquibase requires the following:
- In all changesets, the
authorfield must be non-empty
- Properties in the defaults file (
liquibase.properties) must be valid
LIQUIBASE_*environment variable names must be valid
It is a best practice to set
true so that your changeset metadata is more useful and you can more easily tell if your properties and environment variables have problems. This lets you catch mistakes before you deploy your changes.
If you leave strict at its default setting of
false, Liquibase ignores these requirements.
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||
