Full Description


Docker image with Liquibase installation.

Default behavior

By default runs a simple container with Liquibase:

docker run -it --name liquibase teraproc/docker-liquibase

In the shell you can perform the usual liquibase operations.

Support for automation

Additionally the image has a set of scripts that help automating a few liquibase commands:

  • diff
  • update

The image comes with a preinstalled postgres jdbc driver.

Linked with a postgres database and provided with a volume, the container can be used
to automatically perform diff and update operations.


docker run -it \
--entrypoint="/scripts/" \
-e CONNECTION_STRING="jdbc:postgresql://$DB_IP:5432/$DB_NAME" \
-v /$LIQUIBASE_CHANGELOGS:/changelogs \
teraproc/docker-liquibase \

The variables should be set as follows:

LIQUIBASE_CONTAINER - the name of the docker container
REFERENCE_DB_CONTAINER - the docker container running a (postgres) database being the reference of the diff command
CONNECTION_STRING - the connection to the target database
DB_IP - the IP address of the target database
DB_NAME - the target database name
DB_USER - the user to the target database
DB_PASS - password to the target database
LIQUIBASE_INCLUSION_FILE - changelog file name in the changelogs folder, the generated diff file will be added as an include tag to it if provided
LIQUIBASE_CHANGELOGS - volume on the host machine, where the generated file will be written

By running the command above , you'll get on the volume:

  1. a new changelog file with the diff results
  2. the new changelog file included in the provided include-file


docker run -it \
--link $DB_CONTAINER:db \
--entrypoint="/scripts/" \
-v /$LIQUIBASE_CHANGELOGS:/changelogs \


LIQUIBASE_CONTAINER - the name of the docker container
DB_CONTAINER - the container name running the target database
LIQUIBASE_CHANGELOGS - volume with the changelogs to be applied
LIQUIBASE_CHANGELOG_FILE - the name of the changelog file to be applied
