Backward Compatibility Issues

  • v6.5.x and beyond

    • MongoDB: PersistentAuditEvent Documents not found after upgrading (#11290).

      • jhipster upgrade will remove @Field("event_id") annotation on PersistentAuditEvent#id domain class.

      • The goal is identifying Documents properly by _id field instead, using Spring Data @Id annotation. But: when querying pre-upgrade stored documents, the query won’t look for event_id, thus those won’t be found.

      • Such specific case should not impact regular applications behaviour.

      • Domain backwards compatibility can be restored by adding @Field(value = "event_id", targetType = FieldType.OBJECT_ID) annotation to PersistentAuditEvent#id in combination with @Id.

How to upgrade

Automatic upgrade

For an automatic upgrade, use the JHipster upgrade sub-generator on an existing application:

Upgrade your version of JHipster:

npm update -g generator-jhipster

And then run the upgrade sub-generator:

jhipster upgrade

Manual upgrades

For a manual upgrade, first upgrade your version of JHipster with:

npm update -g generator-jhipster

If you have an existing project, it will still use the JHipster version with which it was generated. To upgrade your project, you must first delete its node_modules folder and then run:


You can also update your project and all its entities by running

jhipster --with-entities

You can also update your entities one-by-one by running again the entity sub-generator, for example if your entity is named Foo

jhipster entity Foo
