The official documentation, “Migrating data from MongoDB 3 to 5”, wants to dump the MongoDB databases in 3.6 and then restore this data into the newly deployed MongoDB 5.
One issue with this process is that we can’t run the two MongoDB versions in parallel on Kubernetes because the provided helm charts and container for MongoDB 3.6 stop running after Kubernetes 1.21. On the other side, the helm chart providing MongoDB 5 can’t be installed on those old Kubernetes versions. So the process to update is:
- Dump databases in MongoDB 3.6 (version delivered with Connections 7)
- Update Kubernetes to 1.25 or 1.27
- Restore MongoDB databases to version 5.0

Last week I attended FrOSCon[https://froscon.org], a yearly conference about Free and Open-Source software, organized by the computer science department of the University of Applied Sciences Bonn-Rhein-Sieg.
After updating HCL Connections to 8CR3 and Tiny Editors to 126.96.36.199 the lines of tables are no longer visible during editing.
Here is the edit form with Tiny Editors 188.8.131.52:
During a troubleshooting session in Component Pack, I checked the Kubernetes events.
To install the Component Pack for HCL Connections 8, you need to create a Mongodb5 image. The image sources can be found in the HCL MongoDB repository , and the process for creating the image is documented in Installing MongoDB5 for Component Pack 8 . The process involves using Docker, so if you have it installed, you can follow the instructions provided.
