Backward Compatibility Issues Permalink to "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.
