    Bytebase 1.1.0

    bb CLI is the command-line tool of Bytebase, helping developers integrate MySQL and PostgreSQL schema change into the existing CI/CD workflow. By integrating bb with your existing CI/CD system (GitLab CI, GitHub Actions, etc.), you can bring all best practices of CI/CD to the database.

    Bytebase 1.0.5

    • Launch the Chinese version of our official website.


    πŸŽ„ Enhancement

    • Add custom project webhook.

      The webhooks we currently support are pre-defined and basically can only do notifications, custom webhook can be more flexible to interact with some external systems (for example, external systems want to sense the status of an issue and do some different operations based on the issue status). _

    • Add "Format on save" checkbox on the issue detail page.

      With the default check, when the users click the "Create issue" button, the SQL statement will be automatically formatted.

    • Add "Sync schema afterward" checkbox on the instance create and detail page to allow users to disable the database sync if needed.

      Currently, we sync the schema upon adding/patching the instance. This provides a better UX since the user will see the schema after adding the instance. However, for instances having large schemas, the request will timeout and prevents them from adding the instance at all. The added checkbox only appears if connection-related info is changed.

    Release MySQL SQL Review Guide

    SQL Review Guide lists all the rules in schema change review, from the naming convention of Table, Column, and Index to the designated WHERE clause. We provide rule templates for the MySQL Dev and Prod environments. DBAs can configure the rules manually based on our templates, and generate images for internal reference. Β Meanwhile, we are actively working on the following area:

    • Add more rules. We also welcome DBAs' suggestions at Issues Β· bytebase/bytebase
    • Integrate those rules into the Bytebase product by detecting rule violations automatically.

    Currently, we only support MySQL. We will add PostgreSQL support later. _
