Running migrations


To see all available options for these commands, use the --help flag, for example piccolo migrations forwards --help.


To see the SQL queries of a migration without actually running them , use the --preview flag, for example: piccolo migrations forwards my_app --preview or piccolo migrations backwards 2018-09-04T19:44:09 --preview.


When the migration is run, the forwards function is executed. To do this:

piccolo migrations forwards my_app

Reversing migrations

To reverse the migration, run this:

piccolo migrations backwards 2018-09-04T19:44:09

You can try going forwards and backwards a few times to make sure it works as expected.

Checking migrations

You can easily check which migrations have and haven’t ran using the following:

piccolo migrations check
