Error & Warning Details

Errors

Mongoose Version [E001]

Error: Please use mongoose 6.9.0 or higher (Current mongoose: x.x.x) [E001]

Error Class: Error

Details:
Typegoose requires at least the mentioned mongoose version because that version was validated for that version of typegoose, previous / newer mongoose versions may have functional or type changes which are incompatible with the currently installed typegoose version.

Mongoose Compatability

NodeJS Version [E002]

Error: You are using a NodeJS Version below 14.17.0, Please Upgrade! [E002]

Error Class: Error

Details:
Typegoose requires at least NodeJS Version 14.17, because:

  • it is the lowest LTS version, which many (dev) dependencies already require

Function only supports to be called "${supported}" times [E003]

Error:

Function "${functionName}" only supports to be called "${supported}" times with the same parameters [E003]
${extra}

Error Class: FunctionCalledMoreThanSupportedError

Details:
For example addModelToTypegoose only supports to be called once (1) with the same model name, this problem has a specific Guide.

Self Containing Class [E004]

Error:

It seems like the type used is the same as the target class, which is not supported
Please look at https://github.com/typegoose/typegoose/issues/42 for more information (${name}.${key}) [E004]

Error Class: SelfContainingClassError

Details:
Because of limitations in JavaScript, it is not possible to use a self-containing-class
-> But Self-Referencing still works

ref is undefined [E005]

Error: Prop-Option "ref"'s value is "null" or "undefined" for "${name}.${key}" [E005]

Error Class: RefOptionIsUndefinedError

Details:
Either:

  • The Option ref was defined with a function, but that function returned undefined / null
  • The Option ref was defined with undefined / null ({ ref: undefined }) (Can Be Solved with this guide)

Example of when this gets triggered:

class ErrorClass {
@prop({ ref: () => undefined }) // <- error here
public someProp?: Ref<ErrorClass>;

@prop({ ref: undefined }) // <- error here
public someProp?: Ref<ErrorClass>;
}

Error: "${targetName}.${key}"'s Type is invalid! Type is: "${Type}" [E009]

Error Class: InvalidTypeError

Details:
The Type in its final state (after checking rawOptions.type and executing the deferring-function) is either undefined / null or not being a function

Example of when this gets triggered:

enum TestEnum {}

class ErrorClass {
@prop({ type: () => undefined }) // <- error here, correct type: "String"
public someProp?: string;

@prop({ type: 'Hello' }) // <- error here, correct type: "String"
public someProp?: string;

@prop({ type: TestEnum }) // <- error here, correct type: "String"
public someProp?: TestEnum
}

Not String Type Error (Enum) [E010]

Error:

Typeof "${targetName}.${key}" is "String", used enum is not only Strings! [E010]
Encountered with property in Enum: ${enumKey}.${typeof enumValue}

Error Class: NotStringTypeError

Details:
This Error should never be thrown if Typescript is used, it throws if the Type is String and an enum(option) is provided, but the enum is not only consisting of strings

Not Number Type Error (Enum) [E011]

Error:

Typeof "${targetName}.${key}" is "Number", value is undefined/null or does not have a reverse mapping! [E011]
Encountered with property: ${enumKey}.${typeof enumValue}

Error Class: NotNumberTypeError

Details:
This Error should never be thrown if Typescript is used, it throws if the Type is Number and an enum(option) is provided, but the enum is not only consisting of numbers (checked by the reverse mapping)

Invalid Type for Enum [E012]

Error:

Invalid Type used for options "enum" at "${name}.${key}"! [E012]
Type: "${toStringNoFail(value)}"
https://typegoose.github.io/typegoose/docs/guides/error-warning-details#invalid-type-for-enum-e012

Error Class: InvalidEnumTypeError

Details:
This Error may get thrown when a invalid Type is used with the option enum. Currently Valid Types for enum are String or Number.

This may be thrown when using typescript option transpileOnly (see Known Issues: transpile-only) or using Babel without proper configuration (see Known Issues: Babel).

tip

This Error has a workaround, see Use Without "emitDecoratorMetadata".

Invalid PropType used [E013]

Error: "${proptype}"(${where}) is invalid for "${name}.${key}" [E013]

Input was not string or have .typegooseName function/string [E014]

Error:

Input was not a string AND didn't have a .typegooseName function AND didn't have a .typegooseName string [E014]
Value: "${toStringNoFail(input)}"

Error Class: ResolveTypegooseNameError

Details:

Type doesn't have "OptionsConstructor" [E016]

Error:

Type has a invalid "OptionsConstructor" on "${name}.${key}"! [E016]
Type: "${toStringNoFail(type)}"

Error Class: InvalidOptionsConstructor

Details:
The Type provided type does not have a OptionsConstructor property, this property is required to map options correctly.

Typegoose uses the property OptionsConstructor on types (like mongoose.Schema.Types.ObjectId.OptionsConstructor) to correctly map the options (from @prop(options)) to the appropriate place.

If custom types are used and they don't have OptionsConstructor, and an easy way to workaround this error is the following:

mongoose.Schema.Types.Custom.OptionsConstructor = {}; // only do this if really necessary
mongoose.Schema.Types.Custom.OptionsConstructor = mongoose.SchemaTypeOptions; // prefer this if possible

Setting "Mixed" is not allowed [E017]

Error: Setting "Mixed" is not allowed! (${name}, ${key}) [E017]

Error Class: TypeError

Details:
The option to change Severity is set to Severity.ERROR

Error: "dim" needs to be higher than 0 (${name}.${key}) [E018]

Error Class: RangeError

Details:
The Option dim must be at least 1 or higher, because an array with 0 (or less) dimensions is not possible

Assertion Error [E019]

Error: Assert failed - no custom error [E019]

Error: "PropOptions.discriminators" doesn't support Arrays higher and lower than 1 (got "${gotType.dim}" dimensions at "${name}.${key}") [E020]

Error Class: Error

Details:
Somewhere the option discriminators was defined with an array which had more or less than 1 dimension

Example of when this gets triggered:

class ErrorClass {
@prop({ discriminators: () => [[ErrorClass]] }) // <- error here
public someProp?: ErrorClass; // (this is just an example)

@prop({ discriminators: () => ErrorClass }) // <- error here
public someProp?: ErrorClass; // (this is just an example)
}

The Option does not support a Option Value [E027]

Error: The Option "${currentOption}" does not support Option "${problemOption}" other than "${expected}" (provided was: "${provided}") [E027]

Error Class: OptionDoesNotSupportOption

Details:
The Option currentOption does not support the value provided that was set for problemOption, expected value was expected.

This Error gets most commonly thrown when:

  • Option discriminators's function return value is not a array.
  • Option discriminators' function return value is a multi-layer array.
  • Option ref's value or function return value is a array.

Example of when this gets triggered:

class ErrorClassDiscriminators {
@prop({ discriminators: () => [[ErrorClass]] }) // <- error here

getModelWithString(undefined); // Expected key(name of first argument) to be a string

@pre('', undefined) // Expected fn(name of second argument) to be a function
@post('', undefined) // Expected fn(name of second argument) to be a function
class SomeClass {}

@pre('', () => {}, '')) // Expected options(name of third argument) to be a object or undefined
