Thanks a lot !
But be careful your migration will not be reversible.
For this, you need to add something like this :

class DropEventExport < ActiveRecord::Migration[6.0]
  def change
    drop_table :event_exports do |t|
      t.boolean "global", default: false
      t.string "file_file_name"
      t.string "file_content_type"
      t.integer "file_file_size"
      t.datetime "file_updated_at"

      t.timestamps null: false
    end
  end
end
