I just started right now a new project in Intellij using Spring Boot ver 2.1.3 and Flyway 5.2.4 with Java 11.
After try to start my project i got :
Caused by: org.springframework.beans.factory.BeanCreationException: Error creating bean with name 'flyway' defined in class path resource [org/springframework/boot/autoconfigure/flyway/FlywayAutoConfiguration$FlywayConfiguration.class]: Bean instantiation via factory method failed; nested exception is org.springframework.beans.BeanInstantiationException: Failed to instantiate [org.flywaydb.core.Flyway]: Factory method 'flyway' threw exception; nested exception is java.lang.IllegalStateException: Cannot find migrations location in: [classpath:db/migration] (please add migrations or check your Flyway configuration)
I have the following folders:
As you can see i have “db/migration” but without any migration, i just started right now. Debugging the class FlywayAutoConfiguration i got the following:
So, i tried to return all files in “classpath:”, see:
Note that i just have “application.properties” file.
I believe that Flyway requires at least one migration script to initialize. Try adding a simple sql creation script into your migration folder and give it another try. Alternatively you can disable the flyway dependency until you need it.
