Frequently asked questions

How do I count targets?

Targets (previously referred to as “database connections”) are the number of data sources in each environment managed with Liquibase. Liquibase is licensed per target to support a wide range of database platforms and configurations.

Our architecture uses database targets at a high rate. Do you offer volume discounts or alternative pricing models for SaaS companies?

Liquibase offers volume discounts and alternative pricing models to fit your business. Contact us for details on alternative pricing models for SaaS companies or volume pricing for architectures and enterprises that leverage targets at a high rate.

How is Liquibase Licensed

Liquibase Open Source is released under the Apache 2.0 license. The main distribution also contains commercially licensed Liquibase Pro code that is only active when a license key is entered.

Liquibase Enterprise is commercially licensed. Contact Sales for more details.

Where can I get the source code?

You can get the Liquibase open source project source code from GitHub.

How is Liquibase different from compare tools that generate change lists?

Liquibase works better because it understands your changes. For example, a database comparison program would simply see the “person” table on integration has a “firstname” and a “lastname” column, but on live, the “person” table has a “name” column. It would report that you need to drop the “name” column and add a “firstname” and a “lastname” column. While this would leave you with the correct schema, you would lose everyone’s name in the process. With Liquibase, you would have a changeset that says “rename ‘name’ to ‘lastname’ and add a ‘firstname’ column” or, even better, “split the name column on a space and place the values in new ‘firstname’ and ‘lastname’ columns, then drop the ‘name’ column.” Knowing why they are different allows you to make changes to a production database without the fear of losing valuable data.

Does Liquibase work with branches?

Yes, Liquibase works with git based workflows to meet your needs, whether that is a trunk based branching, release based or environment based branching. Learn more about Liquibase and GitOps here.

Is 24×7 support available?

Yes. Premium support is available. Contact us and we’ll make sure you get the support you need.

Can I get help with implementation?

Yes. Liquibase offers professional services to help design, plan, and implement based on your unique environment and requirements. Contact us to learn more.

Liquibase has helped us with implementing reliable version control and a CI/CD pipeline for our data warehousing needs. The space for database version control leaves a lot to be desired, but thankfully Liquibase has that covered! We have paired Liquibase with GitHub and GitHub actions to reliably ensure all of our environments are in sync and easily track our deployments.

Mitchell Cooper

Data Engineer

As database administrator and consultant, Liquibase is a great tool. It frees up DBA time to manually sync database schema between DEV, TEST and PROD environments. By doing schema comparison programally, it gives me the peace of mind that all database objects are identical between different environments. We could also delegate the task to operation team.

Feng Cai

Database Consultant - ProServe (Database Migration)

"An ease of error-prone and quick database deployments both on-prem and on cloud integrated with CI/CD DevOps Automation."


Lead DBA

Liquibase brought our database changes and data correction processes up to speed with our code deploys which were already automated. It allows us to rely on automated validation as well as fit into our current software development lifecycle processes and CM software using a central versioned artifact capable of being deployed through our current CD pipeline.

Joe Albano

Senior Configuration Management Advisor

We use the Liquibase tool for DB deployment automations using the CICD process. It helped us a lot by reducing human error with the standard audit reporting structure integrated with it.

Nagendra Sekharamantri

DevOps Engineer

"Use Cases and Deployment Scope We use Liquibase to handle version control and source code control of SQL scripts and database changes and for the deployment and (if needed) rollback of the same. It's helped us go from arbitrary SQL changes that we tried to manually track, to having a reliable, repeatable, accurate account of what's in our database structure."

David Williams

CTO (Chief Technical Officer)

Liquibase addresses challenges related to database schema management, version control, collaboration, and deployment automation. Its scope of use cases spans software development, CI/CD, microservices, data migration, compliance. As applications evolve, the database schema might require refactoring. Liquibase supports the controlled refactoring of database structures while preserving data integrity.

Henry Brit

Lead Engineer

"We use Liquibase to maintain our changelogs while transforming our data in snowflake and deploying it to test and prod. Liquibase changelogs help us keep up to date with our changes and do the rollback in case of any error. Liquibase also provides many validation features that will come in handy if you want to establish checks during your code deployment. It's a great product with excellent customer service."

Pratik Lamsal

DevOps Engineer

Change log management organize and database changes in a systematic manner. Changes are organized into a series of change sets, each representing a specific change or a set of related changes.

Peter Lu

Senior Backend Engineer

I love the flexibility with the schema changes. I don't have to restrict my team to "only XML" way. It is possible to come up with schema changes in YAML and JSON, which is the order of game nowadays.
