    Known Issues

    This section highlights some of the known issues in this release.

    Cluster Manager

    Issue Description


    Summary: Operations to create or drop a scope or collection sometimes fail with a 503 status error.

    Data Service

    Issue Description


    Summary: The disk consumption on Data(KV) nodes was observed to be high, which is caused by FTS having multiple open DCP streams which backfill over time.

    Tools, Web Console (UI), and REST API

    Issue Description


    Summary: In cases where the node list is long, the ability to upload logs from the UI may be hampered.

    Workaround: Use alternate ways to capture logs such as cbcollect via REST or CLI.
