Overall Satisfaction with Liquibase
Using the Liquibase tool for one of our clients. It is being used for the deployment & version control in the oracle database. Liquibase has been integrated into our CICD pipeline which provides the ability to have automated DB deployment without DBAs intervention. The earlier deployment process was manual and error-prone as many pre-steps needed to perform before executing the SQL scripts in the DB. Using Liquibase we are controlling the deployment & version cross all non-prod and prod DBs.
- Preventing the duplicate SQL script execution
- Easy implementation and usage
- More comprensive documentation
- Liquibase & Oracle database integration - There are some limitations that need to be improved.
- liquibase advaced tutorials for DBAs & DevOps people
- No deplicate deployment
- More releases possible
- Less database errors and better tracking in the databasechangelog table
As a DBA I was responsible to perform the database deployments in my production environment. So the earlier process was quite tedious as I need to copy the build files to the database server, set the right parameters environment variables based on the developer's instruction, etc. Liquibase has been integrated with our CICD pipeline hence as DBA we need not worry about deployments.

Suited Well Maintaining our Oracle database as infrastructure as code was extracted the application-related metadata using Liquibase Genschema command. Maintaining our database deployment using git and Liquibase. No duplicate deployment as changes is tracked in the database changelog table. Successful database deployment in production went high and more releases are possible within a short span of time.
