This is a very simple question, yet the answer is not so easy to find in the Spring Boot docs. Stop googling and do the following:
If you have
spring: flyway: enabled: false
The official docs are here https://docs.spring.io/spring-boot/docs/current/reference/html/application-properties.html#application-properties.data-migration.spring.flyway.enabled.
I’m also recommending reading about Spring profiles. The profiles fit perfectly for this requirement, so you can disable Flyway only for certain profile (environment). Example:
# Default, production configuration in application.yml spring: flyway: enabled: false
# Development configuration in application-development.yml spring: flyway: enabled: true
