No need to find the document. Just declare the Query with Criteria, then modify and update it with updateFirst() method.

String TABLE_USER = “table_user”;
Query query = new Query();
Update update = new Update();
update.set(“age”, 25);
update.set(“updatedDate”, new Date());
mongoTemplate.updateFirst(query, update, TABLE_USER);

Update result:

	"_id" : ObjectId("id"), 
	"name" : “cimblo”, 
	"age" : 20, 
	"createdDate" : ISODate("2013-04-06T23:17:35.530Z"), 
	“updatedDate" : ISODate("2013-04-06T23:17:35.530Z") 

But using spring data mongoDB is very simple, you can just like this with mongo repository:

You can Save Or Update the whole object, if “_id” is present, perform an update, else insert it. If using mongo repository like below:

//Find the document first by USER ID
User user = userRepository.findOne(id);

if (user == null) {
  User user = new User();
  user.setName(“Your Name”);
  //save new user object
} else {
  user.setName(“Your Name”);
