@vkarpov15 something that should be straight forward but having an issue. Please review.


The Site.findOne using doc.site_id is returning null. site == null inside callback.'save', function(doc){
  console.log('wtf', doc, doc.site_id, typeof(doc.site_id) )
  Site.findOne({_id: doc.site_id}, function(err, site){
    console.log(err, site) function(err, saved){
      console.log('saved site event:', err, saved)

wtf { status: 'need-review',
  tracking_users: [],
  created_at: Sun Nov 15 2015 06:14:26 GMT+0000 (UTC),
  _id: 564822c29ff782ea00063d5b,
  raw: '',
  url: '',
  text: 'testing',
  name: 'AskMs.Jane',
  site_id: 5647ae80d9d24d01001ae742,
  source: 'twitter',
  __v: 0 } 5647ae80d9d24d01001ae742 object
that's an example output of the console.log('wtf' ...)
the site id exists for sure

this normally just works ... not sure how to debug this here.
tried wrapping doc.site_id with ObjectId, and no luck

playing around with this more, certain site_id's do work. in mongodb, they are all stored as ObjectIds. This is really making my head hurt.

still haven't figured it out but it appears to be related to how I created this event.
let event = new Event({
  site_id: '5631dc9407a36a0100a82cb4',
  text: 'testing again'
see anything wrong with this?
when looking at the db, the site_id was properly casted to ObjectId.
var eventSchema = new Schema({
  source: {type: String, enum: ['angel','twitter','producthunt','crunchbase']},
  site_id: {type: Schema.Types.ObjectId, ref: 'Site', index: true},
  name: {type: String},
  text: {type: String},
  url: {type: String},
  status: {type: String, default: 'need-review', enum:['need-review', 'approved', 'dismissed']},
  tracking_users: [{type: Schema.Types.ObjectId, ref: 'User'}],
  raw: {type: Schema.Types.Mixed},
  created_at: {type: Date, default: }

so i if i use a site id that was created a while back, no problems
it's only newly created site_ids

Is there a way to specify the schema for the values of an object? For example: {"foo": { "subscribed": true, "unread": 9 }, "bar": { "subscribed": false, "unread": 7 } }
If I wanted to put these in an array, I could use [ { "name": String, "subscribed": Boolean, "unread": Number } ].
