Sync Schema

If you are using NocoDB with version 0.90 onwards, please check out the latest documentation here instead. The documentation for previous versions is no longer maintained and will be completely removed on 30 Jun 2022. See v0.90 Important Announcement for more.

How to sync schema changes to NocoDB.

NocoDB allows you to sync schema changes if you have made changes outside NocoDB GUI. However, it has to be noted then you will have to bring your own schema migrations for moving from environment to other.

Below are the steps to sync schema changes.

  1. Under Settings menubar, click Project Metadata
  2. Under Meta Management tab, click on Metadata sub tab.
  3. Changes carried outside GUI, identified by NocoDB are listed under Sync state
  4. Click Sync Now to complete Schema sync procedure.

Note

  1. Column rename operation will be treated like 'column delete' & 'column create' operation
  2. Only table schema changes identified will be listed under Sync state; any changes to records are automatically synchronized.
