Sbt 1.x plugin for Flyway

Welcome to the home for the sbt v1.x plugin for flyway. The user manual will tell you how to get started. This project is based on the original flyway-sbt that was in the flyway repository through version 4.2.1.


This repository is a community project and not officially maintained by the Flyway Team at Redgate. This project is looked after only by the open source community. Community Maintainers are people who have agreed to be contacted with queries for support and maintenance. Community Maintainers:

Getting started

Adding Flyway to your build is very easy. First, update to your project/plugin.sbt file to include:

 addSbtPlugin("io.github.davidmweber" % "flyway-sbt" % "7.4.0")

Please check out Maven Central for versions of flyway-sbt for previous versions of Flyway.

Edit build.sbt to enable the plugin and configure the database access:

version := "0.0.1"
name := "flyway-sbt-test1"

libraryDependencies += "org.hsqldb" % "hsqldb" % "2.5.0"

flywayUrl := "jdbc:hsqldb:file:target/flyway_sample;shutdown=true"
flywayUser := "SA"
flywayPassword := ""
flywayLocations += "db/migration"
flywayUrl in Test := "jdbc:hsqldb:file:target/flyway_sample;shutdown=true"
flywayUser in Test := "SA"
flywayPassword in Test := ""

Migrate your database using sbt flywayMigrate or clean it using sbt flywayClean.

Note that the flywayTarget setting has been disabled due to this bug.

Building and testing

Build and testing uses sbt and it's plugin testing framework. The test cases are pretty basic (hint: we need more of those). There is no support for sbt prior to 1.0. Use the legacy plugin instead.

Note that from v5.0.0 onwards, the plugin has to be explicitly enabled using enablePlugins(FlywayPlugin). This prevents Flyway actions triggering unrelated build activity and addresses this issue.

Build and test the plugin using

sbt scripted
