"Create Model " in API & Microservices is not succeeding

Tell us what’s happening:

var express = require('express');

var app = express();

var bodyParser = require('body-parser');

var jsonParser = bodyParser.urlencoded({extended:false});

var mongoose = require('mongoose');

var Schema = mongoose.Schema;

mongoose.connect(process.env.MONGO_URI,{ useNewUrlParser: true, useUnifiedTopology: true }, () => {




app.use("/public", express.static(__dirname + "/public"));

var personSchema = new Schema({

name: {


required: true


age : Number,

favoriteFoods : [String]


var Person = mongoose.model("Person", personSchema)

var meher = new Person({name:'Meher', age:32, favoriteFoods:["Potato", "Leafy Vegetables"]})

module.exports = app

This is not succeeding. it’s showing
“Creating an instance from a mongoose schema should succeed”

Hi @tmkrishna.ui !

Welcome to the forum!

It looks like you changed the starter code.

This is the starter code you need to build off of.

Since you are using replit you can use the starter project provided for you.

Hope that helps!
