Challenge: Stock Price Checker

Link to the challenge:

Is the NODE_ENV set to true in .env file? That is required for functional tests results to be accessed from the outside.

than you for your response, yes the NODE_ENV is set to ‘test’ to satisfy
if(process.env.NODE_ENV===‘test’) but my procees.env variables seem to be all Undefined so i forced the if statement if(process.env.NODE_ENV===‘test’ || true) this way i execute all the tests, results:
Listening on port undefined

5 passing (3s)
but when i submit the live project link every thing passes except for the last test_phase

Just to make sure, it needs to be set in the newly created file named .env (that’s literally the name).

yes sample.env
DB = # here goes the mongo conection string from atlas
thank you again.
ps there is always require(‘dotenv’).config(); at the top

Not sample.env, it should be named literally .env that’s (dot)-e-n-v.
