Liquibase Hub Auto-Registration and Report Links

Liquibase Hub is a free central site to help you organize and monitor your local Liquibase database change activity in real-time, which increases team collaboration and deployment success. Starting with Liquibase 4.3, you can use two new capabilities of Liquibase Hub:

  • Become a registered user of Liquibase Hub in one step
  • Receive a clickable link to immediately see the Liquibase Hub report of your activity

Running liquibase update or any other Liquibase Hub-enabled command in the CLI (see Use Commands in Liquibase Hub) will give you the option to start sending data to Liquibase Hub. If you accept the option and provide your email address, then a Liquibase Hub User, Organization, Project, Target, and API key are created automatically, and your changelog is registered to your Project. The API key and changelogID are stored in the Liquibase properties file, which is typically named liquibase.properties. If you do not have a properties file, Liquibase creates one in the current working directory.

Liquibase runs your commands and sends a link for the operation report on Liquibase Hub to the console. Open the link in a browser to see the operation report.

Note: If you just auto-registered, complete your initial sign-in using a one-time password sent to your email.

The use of capabilities is currently limited to CLI and will be extended to additional integrations in future releases.

If you use earlier versions of Liquibase, refer to register-changelog.

If you use CI/CD tools and run in automation, the prompt is skipped and the automation continues. In this case, Liquibase uses Java’s internal methods (or you can set liquibase.headless="true") to detect when running commands without interaction.
