DataGrip 2020.1 Help

Run migrations

A migration script changes all database or a part of it. For example, you can use migration scripts to add or remove a column, upgrade the database version, or change column properties.

DataGrip can automatically generate a migration script but you must check it before running.

You can use a migration tool for the following types of SQL objects: procedures, functions, views, materialized views, rules (PostgreSQL), events (MySQL), scripts (Exasol), triggers (except for PostgreSQL).

Generate a migration script

  1. Select two schemas, right-click any of them, and click Compare. Alternatively, select two schemas and press Ctrl+D.

  2. In the Diff Between <schema_1> and <schema_2> dialog, specify comparing options.

  3. Depending on the migration direction, click Migrate Left or Migrate right.
