Migrations/phinx: Exclude table(s)



I would like to use the migrations but I have some thirdparty-tables (sabredav) that can’t be handled by phinx/migrations. The problem is, that theses coloumns are of the type “varbinary” and this isn’t recognized by phinx. So I could never used the plugin.

Is it possible to exclude theses “problematic” tables and I think of install them lateron during install process.

Or should I manually track the changes in an sql-file and handle sql-updates via an admin-center / update-process? But I would really like to use migrations.

Thanks in advance.


I would like to bump this topic because I have to use migrations this week. Sorry for that bumping…
