Hi @Anthony_Wentzel,

I’m sorry to hear that. I do not reproduce on my end.
Could you please share the mongo request that is generated ?

@vince How do I log the mongo request? Is there a debug flag?

As you can see here, it seems you just need to do:

mongoose.set('debug', true);

Ok here’s the debug:

Looks like forest-express-mongoose is not finding the records. When I tap the detail I don’t see any mongo query… it’s almost like the express route does not exist

Yo @Anthony_Wentzel :wave:

Can you share the model definition of the collection Sources ?


import { Exclude } from 'class-transformer'
import { Model, ObjectId } from 'mongoose'

import { Field, ObjectType } from '@nestjs/graphql'
import { DocumentType, index, modelOptions, prop } from '@typegoose/typegoose'

import { BaseSchema } from '../core/data'
import { ObjectIdScalar } from '../core/utils/graphql.utils'
import { Createable, Lookupable } from '../core/utils/types.utils'

const schemaOptions = {
  collection: 'sources',
  timestamps: true,

// Sources are the individual streams of content that we’d be pulling from.  Publishers may have multiple sources.  Sources will need a URL from where we’ll fetch data.
// - Fields
//     - Name
//     - URL
// - Functionalities
// - Relationships
//     - Belongs to a Publisher
//     - Has many Feeds
//     - Has many Communities through Feeds

  // options: {
  //   automaticName: false,
  //   customName: (options) => `${options.schemaOptions?.collection}`,
  // },
  schemaOptions: schemaOptions,
@index({ url: 1 })
export class Source extends BaseSchema {
  @prop({ default: '' })
  public name: string

  @prop({ default: '' })
  public url: string

  @Field(() => ObjectIdScalar)
  @prop({ required: true, ref: 'Publisher' })
  public publisherId: ObjectId

export type CreateableSource = Createable<Source>
export type PartialSource = Partial<Source>
export type FetchableSource = Lookupable<Source>
export type SourceDocument = DocumentType<Source>
export type SourceModel = Model<SourceDocument>
export type SourceRepository = SourceModel

I’ve tried forcing the collection name “sources” to match the model name. But the default collection is “sources” and model name is “Source”

Would you like me to zip you the entire project to help?

Thank you!

Sure. Can you send it to me via Message?

Can you post also your BaseSchema here?
Do you encounter this issue on all your environments or only on dev?
What version of mongoose/mongo are you using?

@Romain_Coudour Yes, I sent you a message with link

Yup, I’m already on it :muscle:, cheers. I’ll keep you posted

Great thank you, happy to help or make whatever changes are needed.

@Romain_Coudour any updates here?

@Anthony_Wentzel Not yet, unfortunately :slightly_frowning_face:
I’ll reach out to some of my colleagues for their opinions on the matter.

I’ll alert you as soon as I find something :muscle::evergreen_tree:

@Anthony_Wentzel Yo :wave:

The issue is still being discussed among us.
In the meantime, here’s a couple of my leads: :mag:

  • Before performing the request against the database, are you casting the ID to ObjectId?
  • The call between the frontend and the backend targets /forest/Source? Is that correct? Shouldn’t it be /forest/sources?

You might want to take a look at this thread. :face_with_monocle:
Also, what’s the intent with this project architecture? Or what is the use case you are trying to do?

EDIT: One of our team will organize a live debug session with you, stay tuned :muscle::evergreen_tree:

Yes, I agree.

Currently, I do not downcast as the forest-express-mongoose is handling all the routes.

I’ve tried it both ways… using the actual model name and setting the collection name for the model.

forest-express-mongoose does throw a warning if we try to use the “sources” (the collection name) versus the actual model name “Source”
