Fusio uses the Doctrine Migrations system. Fusio has basically two components which are using the migration system. At first Fusio it self uses it to install the internal schema and execute updates on a new release. Then it is also possible for the API developer to use the migration system on any remote SQL connection.


For example to install Fusio you execute the following command:

php /bin/fusio migration:migrate

which then executes all migrations on the database which was configured at the .env file. You may have also executed the install command but this is simply an alias to the migrate command.

To use the migration in your app you can provide a connection option which tells Fusio which connection should be used. This can be any SQL connection which you have configured at Fusio.

php /bin/fusio migration:migrate --connection=System

Fusio will look into the src/Migrations/ folder and search for a folder which has the name of your connection. In this case it would be "System". Then it will execute all migrations which are not already executed.


Fusio supports the following migration commands:

migration:execute     Execute a single migration version up or down manually.
migration:generate Generate a blank migration class.
migration:latest Outputs the latest version number
migration:migrate [install] Execute a migration to a specified version or the latest available version.
migration:status View the status of a set of migrations.
migration:up-to-date Tells you if your schema is up-to-date.
migration:version Manually add and delete migration versions from the version table.
