Switching Between Atlas 4.4 and 5.0

We currently are running an M30 Tier. Is it possible to switch from 4.4 to 5.0 and then switch BACK if something goes wrong with our testing ?

Thanks.

Hi @Paul_Calhoun,

Is it possible to switch from 4.4 to 5.0 and then switch BACK if something goes wrong with our testing ?

You will not be able to revert your cluster back to MongoDB version 4.4 if it is upgraded to MongoDB version 5.0 as you cannot downgrade a cluster’s MongoDB version noted on the documentation here. You should receive a warning in the UI stating that you cannot downgrade from 5.0 if you try select this option in the Edit Configuration option as shown below:

However, the recommended best practices for major version upgrades documentation contains a procedure on how to set up a staging cluster (if you do not already have a staging cluster) so that you can test your application(s) against newer version(s) of MongoDB.

Hope this helps!

Regards,
Jason
