Resetting Hasura Migrations and Metadata
This page explains how to reset the state of Migrations and create new migrations from the state that is on the server. This can be useful if the current migration state on your local machine is corrupted.
Step 1: Delete or backup the local migration files
Move all your migrations to a backup folder, in case you need them later.
You can use the following bash move command to move the folder:
# move the contents of the migrations folder into the migrations_backup folder
mv migrations migrations_backup
Step 2: Reset the migration history on the server
To reset the Migrations history status on the server only, use:
# reset migrations on server only
hasura migrate delete --all --server --database-name <database-name>
CLI will log:
? clear all migrations of database and it's history on the server? (Y/n)
Y to execute the command.
To reset the Migrations status on server and clean up the local project migration files
# reset migrations on server and on local project, use:
hasura migrate delete --all --database-name <database-name>
Step 3: Pull the schema and metadata from the server
If the migrations were reset, then we will set up fresh migrations by pulling the schema and metadata from the server using the following commands:
## create migration files - "this will only export public schema from postgres"
hasura migrate create "init" --from-server --database-name <database-name>
## note down the version
## mark the migration as applied on this server
hasura migrate apply --version "<version>" --skip-execution --database-name <database-name>
## to also export the Hasura metadata and save it in the ``/metadata`` directory
hasura metadata export
If you are using schemas other than
public, use the
--schema <schema_name> flag to indicate each one of them in
the create command. This flag can be used multiple times.
Step 4: Verify the status of the migrations
Run the following command to verify the migration status:
hasura migrate status --database-name <database-name>
You should see the new migrations!
