Query error after the app has been created

I am getting a query error that seems to be related to naming. The models have been generated using the latest lumber. Any advice?

Hello @Santosh_Srinivas, thanks for your feedback, and welcome in the community :partying_face:

Can you try to activate logging on sequelize?

Modify your .env file and set the variable NODE_ENV to development.

As you can see in models/index.js, it activates the logging on sequelize.

let databaseOptions = {
  logging: process.env.NODE_ENV === 'development' ? console.log : false,
  pool: { maxConnections: 10, minConnections: 1 },
  dialectOptions: {},

// [...]

let sequelize = new Sequelize(process.env.DATABASE_URL, databaseOptions);

You’ll be able to see which query throws an error.

Thx! Any idea what i need to fix here?

Hello @Santosh_Srinivas
Thank you for sharing the logs, would you be able to share the definition of your plants model

Here …

// This model was generated by Lumber. However, you remain in control of your models.

Thank you @Santosh_Srinivas
I think some part of the model definition is shrunk, can you please share the second part of the model?

sorry @olesyak … I put it here https://pastebin.com/XmysjGf1

Thank you for sharing the information. After some tests, it seems that your field Calories (Kcal/100g) is the issue. Sequilize doesn’t seem to handle well the / character in the name.
I am not sure how you can solve this issue except renaming the column. Sorry :neutral_face:

Hi @Santosh_Srinivas,

There is an issue here, for sure.
Let us investigate a bit on this and we’ll come back to you as soon as we have a solution/more info to share.

Thank you for your patience!


Hello @Santosh_Srinivas,

Could you try a simple thing. I think it could help.
Transform all your fields containing parenthesis this way:

'Calories (Kcal/100g)': {
      type: DataTypes.DOUBLE,

In order to have the same field and fieldname.

Let me know if it helps :slight_smile:

Thanks @Guillaume_Cisco. Too much work for my data structure. I’ll keep this in mind however and try out.

Hello @Santosh_Srinivas
You can find in this pastebin the updated version of your file following the recommendation.

Could you try it?

Let me know if it helps resolving your issue :slight_smile:

Hi @Guillaume_Cisco,

Sorry for the delay. New error:

Thank you @Santosh_Srinivas, It looks like there is an error with this column name.
I missed to translate it in the pastebin I sent you.
Could you transform it to:

'Total Fiber (%)',: {
      type: DataTypes.DOUBLE,

And test again ? :smiley:

Let me know :wink:

No idea what happened but I can’t access the plants model anymore!?

'Total Fiber (%)': {
      type: DataTypes.DOUBLE,

There was an extra comma in my previous message after 'Total Fiber (%)'. Sorry for that.

Is that ok now?

I corrected that but the model has disappeared from the UI

Hello @Santosh_Srinivas

Thank you for your patience.

Could you please try to go to the Layout Editor and check that the collection is not hidden? Here is an article about how to do it.

By default in the app when the new collection is added it is hidden for security reasons.

Thx @olesyak … another error now

Hey @olesyak, @Guillaume_Cisco … can we do a zoom call to figure this out quickly?
