Enable the integration​

Connecting Liquibase and DBmarlin takes only a few minutes to setup. ​When a Liquibase changeset runs, an event is sent to the DBmarlin API containing the change details. This will then appears on the timeline of any charts within the product. Seeing whether any change had a positive or negative affect on the database is now simple. The DBmarlin Comparison Reports can be used analyse the period before and after the change and highlight any differences.


Download the latest released Liquibase extension .jar file and place it in the liquibase/lib directory.

Creating a Custom Event Type for Liquibase​

In DBmarlin under Settings -> Event Types you can create a new one called 'Liquibase change' and set the Icon Code to fak fa-liquibase-icon to get a Liquibase icon.

How it works​

  1. Once setup, each time a changeset is applied, Liquibase sends the schema change details to DBmarlin by making an API call to DBmarlin with changeset details.

  2. DBmarlin shows the Liquibase events in the Event History screen
