When ApsaraDB for MongoDB publishes a minor database version, you can log on to the ApsaraDB for MongoDB console to upgrade your ApsaraDB for MongoDB to the latest minor database version.

Before you start

During an upgrade of the minor database version, the system automatically fixes bugs in the old version. In addition, the latest minor database version also provides you with more new features. You can check the update content in View the publish logs of the latest minor database version.

Currently, only replica set and sharded cluster instances support an upgrade of the minor database version. Standalone instances do not support this upgrade.

During the upgrade of the minor database version, instances are restarted once. The upgrade is completed when instances are being restarted. We recommend that you upgrade the minor database version for instances during off-peak hours.

Note If an instance has been upgraded to the latest minor database version, the console does not display Upgrade in the Specification Information area for the instance.
