Name ^

sqitch-deploy - Deploy changes to a database

Synopsis ^

  sqitch [options] deploy
  sqitch [options] deploy <target>
  sqitch [options] deploy --to-target <target>

Description ^

Deploy changes to the database. Changes will begin from the current deployment state. They will run to the latest change, unless a target is specified, either via --to or with no option flag, in which case changes will be deployed up-to and including that target.

If the database it up-to-date or already deployed to the specified target, no changes will be made. If the target appears earlier in the plan than the currently-deployed state, an error will be returned, along with a suggestion to instead use sqitch-revert.

Options ^

--to-target
--target
--to

Specify the deployment target. Defaults to the last point in the plan. See sqitchchanges for the various ways in which change targets can be specified.

--mode

Specify the reversion mode to use in case of failure. Possible values are:

all

In the event of failure, revert all deployed changes, back to the point at which deployment started. This is the default.

tag

In the event of failure, revert all deployed changes to the last successfully-applied tag. If no tags were applied during this deployment, all changes will be reverted to the pint at which deployment began.

change

In the event of failure, no changes will be reverted. This is on the assumption that a change failure is total, and the change may be applied again.

-s
--set

Set a variable name and value for use by the database engine client, if it supports variables. The format must be name=value, e.g., --set defuser='Homer Simpson'. Overrides any values loaded from the deploy.variables configuration.

Configuration Variables ^

deploy.to_target

Target to deploy to. You probably don't want to set this.

deploy.mode

Deploy mode. The supported values are the same as for the --mode option.

[deploy.variables]

A section defining database client variables. Useful if your database engine supports variables in scripts, such as PostgreSQL's psql variables.

Sqitch ^

Part of the sqitch suite.
