I am not able to complete this challenge
Am I doing something wrong in my program :thinking:
I need some help here :pleading_face:

When I ran the code snippet (line 12,13,14) with the commented code to see if the information gets in the database this is the result that I got

A collection named people was there instead of Person
Is it supposed to happen like this ?

Challenge: Create a Model

Link to the challenge:

Mongoose pluralizes the name.

You can use the collection option when you create the Schema to set a different name. You can test that with the next challenge, e.g. use { collection: 'person' } as the options object.

option: collection

Mongoose by default produces a collection name by passing the model name to the utils.toCollectionName method. This method pluralizes the name. Set this option if you need a different name for your collection.

const dataSchema = new Schema({..}, { collection: 'data' });

Thanks for information :grin:

I’d also suggest you switch to the versions of the packages that is given in the starting challenge.
