Install and setup Mongoose issues

Tell us what’s happening:
I am not able to pass the verification’s for the challenge " MongoDB and Mongoose - Install and Set Up Mongoose". All three fail. I am not sure what is wrong. I am using the link provided in the curriculum. My app appears to run and listen with no issues.

I have tried various syntax corrections and differences but I have no idea what the problem is.

Your code so far
//I replaced with test but this doesn’t seem to have made a difference.

myApp.js (without FCC comments)

var mongodb = require(‘mongodb’);
const mongoose = require(‘mongoose’);
mongoose.connect(process.env.MONGO_URI,{ useNewUrlParser: true, useUnifiedTopology: true });

Challenge: Install and Set Up Mongoose

Link to the challenge:

I have done some more research and I am getting some errors when submitting to FCC. It appears to be some sort of CORS error. Any help resolving this would be appreciated.

I figured this out. You have to submit the link to the page and not the link to the The only way I have found to get this link is to copy it from the browser preview. Hope this helps someone else.

I had the same issue, just don’t use the env way. To pass the test I paste the link direct into the mongoose. connect:

const mongoose = require('mongoose');
mongoose.connect('mongodb+srv://<Cluster0>?retryWrites=true&w=majority', { useNewUrlParser: true, useUnifiedTopology: true });
