Prepare your connection string in an environment variable. This sample uses MySql on Docker container. For more connection string samples, visit

docker run -dit --name yuniql-mysql -e MYSQL_ROOT_PASSWORD=[email protected]! -d -p 3306:3306 mysql:latest --default-authentication-plugin=mysql_native_password

SETX YUNIQL_WORKSPACE "c:\temp\yuniql\samples\basic-mysql-sample"
SETX YUNIQL_CONNECTION_STRING "Server=localhost;Port=3306;Database=helloyuniql;Uid=root;[email protected]!;"

Apply migrations with yuniql run and specify the target platform with --platform. Yuniql discovers the project directory, sorts all versions, creates the target database if it doesn’t exist and runs all migration steps in the right order. These includes .sql files, directories, subdirectories, and csv files.

yuniql run --platform mysql -a --debug
yuniql list --platform mysql

WRN   2021-03-03 22:23:54Z   Target platform does not support for full transactional DDL operations. 
All operations will be executed with transaction mode = statement. When transaction mode is set to statement, 
each batch of sql statement does not participate in a shared transaction context. In the event of failure, 
the rollback attempt is limited to the individual batch of statement.
