Introducing Amazon S3 Access on Liquibase Pro
As an AWS Advanced Technology Partner, Liquibase has a strong history of supporting the AWS Cloud and its tools. Currently, Liquibase Pro integrates with the AWS Cloud to manage database changes across a number of databases within an existing continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) pipelines. And now, Liquibase Pro provides integration with Amazon S3 to support your Database CI/CD pipelines with added simplicity, centralization, and governance.
How It Works
Liquibase workflows can include files such as changelogs, snapshots, SQL files, liquibase.properties files, native executor configuration files, checks settings configuration files, and flow files. By leveraging the secure, file-based storage of S3 in tandem with Liquibase Pro, you’re able to build a reusable repository of Liquibase files, while securely managing database changes. Using this combination of Liquibase Pro with remote S3 files removes the need for all developers to have local copies of Liquibase files, which ensures files are always accurate.
Why Choose S3 + Liquibase Pro?
Added Simplicity: This pairing allows you to seamlessly read from and write to S3 natively.
Centralized configuration: Put your approved Liquibase artifacts where they need to be to support all of your projects.
Improve Security and Governance: Liquibase Pro ensures the right people, processes, and tools have access to the correct files in your CI/CD pipeline, while also enforcing separation of duties and control due to the granular permissions in S3 on AWS.
