8 Database Tools Bytebase Replaces

Bytebase is an all-in-one solution for database development lifecycle management for developers, DBAs and platform engineers. It replaces fragmented database tools and unifies the workflow in a single place.


SQL Client

Traditional SQL clients such as DBeaver, DataGrip, Navicat, pgAdmin, phpMyAdmin provide a GUI interface. Bytebase also provides a web-based SQL Editor. By adopting Bytebase, DBAs no longer need to distribute database credentials to the individuals. DBAs configure the database credentials in Bytebase once, then grant database/table access to individuals conditionally. Furthermore, they can also configure dynamic data masking.


Schema Migration

Liquibase, Flyway, Sqitch are CLI based. On the other hand, Bytebase provides a collaboration workspace for DBAs and developers to collaborate on database changes.

Change Coordination

A typical database change workflow:

  1. The developer creates a Jira ticket with the planned SQL change script.
  2. DBA reviews the ticket, discuss it with the developer in Jira or via IM.
  3. DBA runs the change script offline.
  4. DBA updates the ticket status / notify the developer.

Bytebase provides a single place to coordinate the database changes. The issue interface provides a holistic view of the database change status. Upon approval, changes are rolled out from Bytebase directly instead of switching to a different tools. All the activities are recorded and can be further configured to post to IM via webhook.

Issue detail interface


Bytebase takes care of all human-to-database operations. It's an all-in-one solution for teams to adopt a unified process to change, query, secure, govern the databases.
