@deepaknverma I don’t think there is anything in Mongoose for that.
You can get the list of collections from Mongo with db.getCollectionNames()
But deriving a schema is non-trivial: What if some of the documents have inconsistent fields?!
I think StrongLoop’s LoopBack may have done some work on automatically deriving Schemas.

Hello. I am using native promises with mongoose. For actions such as save, I am utilizing a catch block to handle errors. Are catch blocks ever necessary for 'find' actions? I am considering removing them as I am unable to trigger a catch condition when retrieving data. Thanks.

If you have a User schema, in the other document, include an entry like this:
User-Id:         { type: Schema.Types.ObjectId, ref: 'User' }
