The skip property allows to skip the execution of the Spring Boot maven plugin altogether. This example shows how you can skip integration tests with a command-line property and still make sure that the repackage goal runs:

<project>
  <properties>
    <skip.it>false</skip.it>
    ...
  </properties>
  ...
  <build>
    ...
    <plugins>
      ...
      <plugin>
        <groupId>org.springframework.boot</groupId>
        <artifactId>spring-boot-maven-plugin</artifactId>
        <version>2.2.0.BUILD-SNAPSHOT</version>
        <executions>
          <execution>
            <id>pre-integration-test</id>
            <goals>
              <goal>start</goal>
            </goals>
            <configuration>
              <skip>${skip.it}</skip>
            </configuration>
          </execution>
          <execution>
            <id>post-integration-test</id>
            <goals>
              <goal>stop</goal>
            </goals>
            <configuration>
              <skip>${skip.it}</skip>
            </configuration>
          </execution>
        </executions>
      </plugin>
      <plugin>
        <groupId>org.apache.maven.plugins</groupId>
        <artifactId>maven-failsafe-plugin</artifactId>
        <configuration>
          <skip>${skip.it}</skip>
        </configuration>
      </plugin>
      ...
    </plugins>
    ...
  </build>

By default, the integration tests will run but this setup allows you to easily disable them on the command-line as follows: mvn verify -Dskip.it=true.
