Generate a migration script

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.

GoLand can automatically generate a migration script that you must check before running.

  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.
