Overall Satisfaction with Liquibase

We use Liquibase to control the version of SQL scripts, source code, deployment, and (if required) rollback of database changes. We were able to go from manually tracking arbitrary SQL changes to having a reliable, repeatable, and precise representation of the contents of our database structure thanks to its help. It lessens the manual work and helps us update clients via the Jenkins pipeline.

Pros

  • It's a useful tool for managing database versions and aiding in the development of database CI/CD pipelines.
  • The deployment and management of database updates are simple.
  • It provides quality checks to spot problems in DB scripts and DB pipeline views to track changes made to DB.

Cons

  • The community version has very few features enabled.
  • Using a time-series of logs chart, you can figure out how often changes happen and how much risk there is.
  • Further develop documentation and use case models
  • There is less inconsistency between the database environment and It saves a lot of time and staff for the DBA.
It evaluate changes from testing to cut down on mistakes made during production changes. It provides an overall positive database administration group experience. conforms well to best practices in DevOps. Additionally, we were able to make use of this opportunity to implement a greater number of incremental changes as opposed to periodic large ones.
Already, the documentation and the community have proven to be very helpful.
Liquibase makes it easy to integrate into CI/CD pipelines, keeping the database and code in sync. The switch from one database management system to another is made easier by modeling the structure of the database in DBMS-independent XML rather than SQL. A user-friendly web console gives you a complete picture of the database landscape by showing you which environments have received a particular changeset.

Do you think Liquibase delivers good value for the price?

Yes

Are you happy with Liquibase's feature set?

Yes

Did Liquibase live up to sales and marketing promises?

I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process

Did implementation of Liquibase go as expected?

Yes

Would you buy Liquibase again?

Yes

One of the features that I think is useful is the support for various rollback scenarios and multi-DB support. They also pay attention to their clients, and I believe that the quality metrics feature enables us to apply rules and coding standards specific to our organization. It provides DB pipeline views for changes deployed to DB and quality checks for DB scripts, both of which aid in error detection.
