Error Codes

When Flyway commands fail, they throw an exception with a message to help you identify the problem. They also contain an error code which users of the API or those who have enabled machine readable output can inspect and handle accordingly. Below are details of each error code under the command that causes it along with a suggested solution.

General Error Codes

These error codes may appear from any command, and are indicative of more general errors.

FAULT

  • Caused by: An unexpected error within Flyway (e.g. a null pointer exception)
  • Solution: Please contact support or create a GitHub issue

ERROR

  • Caused by: An error due to invalid configuration or usage not caught by a more specific error code
  • Solution: Ensure all configuration and usage is as per the documentation

JDBC_DRIVER

  • Caused by: The JDBC driver is unable to be instantiated
  • Solution: Check whether the JDBC driver is present on the classpath

DB_CONNECTION

  • Caused by: Issues in SQL statements reported by the JDBC driver
  • Solution: Check whether the SQL provided to Flyway is correct

CONFIGURATION

  • Caused by: Incorrect configuration provided to Flyway
  • Solution: Ensure your configuration is as per the documentation

DUPLICATE_VERSIONED_MIGRATION

  • Caused by: Multiple versioned migrations having the same version
  • Solution: Ensure that all versioned migrations have a unique version

DUPLICATE_REPEATABLE_MIGRATION

  • Caused by: Multiple repeatable migrations having the same description
  • Solution: Ensure that all repeatable migrations have a unique description

DUPLICATE_UNDO_MIGRATION

  • Caused by: Multiple undo migrations that undo the same versioned migration
  • Solution: Ensure that there is at most one undo migration per versioned migration

DUPLICATE_DELETED_MIGRATION

  • Caused by: Schema history or filesystem corruption causing the same migration to appear to be deleted more than once
  • Solution: Ensure that you do not tamper with the schema history and all migrations that have been deleted are removed from locations known to Flyway

Validate Error Codes

These error codes are surfaced when running validate or validateWithResult.

VALIDATE_ERROR

  • Caused by: Some migrations have failed validation
  • Solution: Inspect the list invalidMigrations on the validate result to see the required actions

SCHEMA_DOES_NOT_EXIST

  • Caused by: The schema being validated against does not exist
  • Solution: Manually create the schema or enable createSchemas

FAILED_REPEATABLE_MIGRATION

  • Caused by: A failed repeatable migration was detected
  • Solution: Remove any incomplete changes then run repair to fix the schema history

FAILED_VERSIONED_MIGRATION

  • Caused by: A failed versioned migration was detected
  • Solution: Remove any incomplete changes then run repair to fix the schema history

APPLIED_REPEATABLE_MIGRATION_NOT_RESOLVED

  • Caused by: A repeatable migration that was applied wasn’t resolved in any supplied locations
  • Solution: If you removed this migration intentionally run repair to mark the migration as deleted

APPLIED_VERSIONED_MIGRATION_NOT_RESOLVED

  • Caused by: A versioned migration that was applied wasn’t resolved in any supplied locations
  • Solution: If you removed this migration intentionally run repair to mark the migration as deleted

RESOLVED_REPEATABLE_MIGRATION_NOT_APPLIED

  • Caused by: A repeatable migration that was resolved has not been applied
  • Solution: To ignore this migration set ignoreMigrationPatterns to *:ignored

RESOLVED_VERSIONED_MIGRATION_NOT_APPLIED

  • Caused by: A versioned migration that was resolved has not been applied
  • Solution: To ignore this migration set ignoreMigrationPatterns to *:ignored and to allow executing this migration enable outOfOrder

OUTDATED_REPEATABLE_MIGRATION

  • Caused by: An applied repeatable migration was resolved with a newer checksum and can be reapplied
  • Solution: Run migrate to execute this migration

TYPE_MISMATCH

  • Caused by: The type of the resolved migration (BASELINE, SQL, UNDO_SQL, …) is different from the applied migration’s
  • Solution: Either revert the changes to the migration or run repair to update the schema history

CHECKSUM_MISMATCH

  • Caused by: The checksum of the resolved migration is different from the applied migration’s
  • Solution: Either revert the changes to the migration or run repair to update the schema history
