Exercise Tracker 8th test

Can’t complete the 8th requirement The response returned from POST /api/users/:_id/exercises will be the user object with the exercise fields added.
Don’t really know what’s wrong with it.

let userSchema = new mongoose.Schema({
  username: { type: String, required: true },
  log: [{
    description: { type: String, required: true },
    duration: { type: Number, required: true },
    date: String

app.post("/api/users/:_id/exercises", bodyParser.urlencoded({ extended: false }), (req, res) => {
  let responseObject = {}
  const id = req.body[':_id']
  const description = req.body.description
  const duration = parseInt(req.body.duration)
  let date = req.body.date
  if (date === "")
    date = new Date().toDateString()
    date = new Date(date).toDateString()
  const new_log = {
    description: description,
    duration: duration,
    date: date
  user_Model.findByIdAndUpdate(id, { $push: { log: new_log } }, { new: true }, (err, save) => {
    if (save === undefined || save === null)
      return res.json("Invaild Id")
    else if (err)
      return console.log(err)
      responseObject = {
        username: save.username,
        description: description,
        duration: duration,
        _id: save._id,
        date: date

I edited your post to make the links work.

if (date === "")

Are you sure date is an empty string when not supplied? I would log it out.

But i’ve checked the network logs and all of the requests are without any id and so the response would be “Invalid id”.

The other logs are also similar witout any ids

Have a look at this thread.


Yea… i just changed it to check the date for any undefined values and it worked… The above thread also helped…
Thankies :blush:
