Maven rollbackOneChangeSetSQL

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

rollbackOneChangeSetSQL is a helper goal that allows you to inspect the SQL Liquibase will run to revert the changeset specified when using the Maven rollbackOneChangeSet goal.

Uses

rollbackOneChangeSetSQL is typically used when you want to inspect the raw SQL that Liquibase uses to revert your changeset when you run the rollbackOneChangeSet goal so that you don't unintentionally make a mistake.

Maven configuration

Liquibase Maven can be configured in multiple ways. One way is to define your Liquibase configuration properties in your pom.xml file. To configure your pom.xml file, refer to Configuring Liquibase Attributes in your Maven POM File. If pom.xml does not reference a Liquibase properties file, include <changeLogFile>specify your changelog file here</changeLogFile> and <ProLicenseKey>specify your Liquibase Pro license key here</ProLicenseKey> to pom.xml.

Running the rollbackOneChangeSetSQL Maven goal

Before running the rollbackOneChangeSetSQL goal, gather the following information from your DATABASECHANGELOG table:

  • The author of the changeset you want to revert
  • The id of the changeset you want to revert
  • The filename (changeset path) of the changeset you want to revert

Note: The liquibase.rollbackScript script is only needed if the rollback is not yet defined in the changelog and if it is not a rollback that is automatically provided by Liquibase.

Also, you can run the Maven history goal to see the history of all deployments against the configured database:

mvn liquibase:history

Next, run the rollbackOneChangeSetSQL goal, with your information:

Note: Running the rollbackOneChangeSetSQL goal requires a Maven project to be implemented.

mvn liquibase:rollbackOneChangeSetSQL
-Dliquibase.changeSetAuthor="LiquibaseProUser"
-Dliquibase.changeSetId="createProSchema"
-Dliquibase.changeSetPath="changelog.xml" -Dliquibase.force

Note: Enter the name of the changeset author, id, and the path with the changelog filename that you want to use in place of LiquibaseProUser, createProSchema, and changelog.xml. For more information, run mvn liquibase:help -Ddetail=true -Dgoal=rollbackOneChangeSetSQL.
