Maven Goal: Repair

Repairs the Flyway metadata table. This will perform the following actions:

  • Remove any failed migrations on databases without DDL transactions
    (User objects left behind must still be cleaned up manually)
  • Correct wrong checksums


> mvn flyway:repair


Parameter Required Default Description
url YES The jdbc url to use to connect to the database
driver NO Auto-detected based on url The fully qualified classname of the jdbc driver to use to connect to the database
serverId NO flyway-db The id of the server in the Maven settings.xml file to load the credentials from.

This is an alternative to passing the credentials in directly through properties.
user NO The user to use to connect to the database
password NO The password to use to connect to the database
schemas NO default schema of the connection Case-sensitive list of schemas managed by Flyway.
The first schema will be the one containing the metadata table.
table NO schema_version The name of Flyway's metadata table.
By default (single-schema mode) the metadata table is placed in the default schema for the connection provided by the datasource.
When the flyway.schemas property is set (multi-schema mode), the metadata table is placed in the first schema of the list.
locations NO filesystem:src/main/resources/db/migration Locations to scan recursively for migrations. The location type is determined by its prefix.
Unprefixed locations or locations starting with classpath: point to a package on the classpath and may contain both sql and java-based migrations.
Locations starting with filesystem: point to a directory on the filesystem and may only contain sql migrations.
sqlMigrationPrefix NO V The file name prefix for Sql migrations
repeatableSqlMigrationPrefix NO R The file name prefix for repeatable Sql migrations
sqlMigrationSeparator NO __ The file name separator for Sql migrations
sqlMigrationSuffix NO .sql The file name suffix for Sql migrations
encoding NO UTF-8 The encoding of Sql migrations
placeholderReplacement NO true Whether placeholders should be replaced
placeholders NO Placeholders to replace in Sql migrations
placeholderPrefix NO ${ The prefix of every placeholder
placeholderSuffix NO } The suffix of every placeholder
resolvers NO Fully qualified class names of custom MigrationResolver implementations to be used in addition to the built-in ones for resolving Migrations to apply.
skipDefaultResolvers NO false Whether default built-in resolvers (sql, jdbc and spring-jdbc) should be skipped. If true, only custom resolvers are used.
callbacks NO Fully qualified class names of FlywayCallback implementations to use to hook into the Flyway lifecycle.
skipDefaultCallbacks NO false Whether default built-in callbacks (sql) should be skipped. If true, only custom callbacks are used.
skip NO false Skips the execution of the plugin for this module
configFile NO flyway.properties Properties file from which to load the Flyway configuration. The names of the individual properties match the ones you would use as Maven or System properties. The encoding of the file must be the same as the encoding defined with the flyway.encoding property, which is UTF-8 by default. Relative paths are relative to the POM.
