Node.js Question

Getting a validation error in mongoose even though files are provided

I am getting a validation error with the following message on saving to database even though I have provided all the fields,

{ [ValidationError: Validation failed]
message: 'Validation failed',
name: 'ValidationError',
errors:
{ Name:
{ [ValidatorError: Path `Name` is required.]
message: 'Path `Name` is required.',
name: 'ValidatorError',
path: 'Name',
type: 'required',
value: undefined } } }


This is how the object that I am trying to save looks like

{ Name: 'Nobody Singh',
phone: '+919177121364',
address: 'flat no 306 koratala apartments\nstreet no 3 ,Himayatnagar, Near Siraj plaza',
start: '2014-12-03T13:00:00.000Z',
end: '2014-12-03T15:00:00.000Z',
details: 'flat no 306 koratala apartments\nstreet no 3 ,Himayatnagar, Near Siraj plaza' }


an here are the schema

// load the things we need
var mongoose = require('mongoose');

// define the schema for our user model
var appointmentSchema = mongoose.Schema({
email: { type: String, default: 'maisnamraj@gmail.com' },
name: { type: String, required:true },
phone: { type:Number },
address:{ type: String },
details:{ type: String },
title:{ type: String, default: "Slot Taken"},
start: { type:Date},
end: { type:Date},
requestedDate: { type:Date, default: Date.now }

});



// create the model for users and expose it to our app
module.exports = mongoose.model('Appointment', appointmentSchema);


Here is the route file

app.post('/saveappointment', function(req, res) {

var appointment = new Appointment();

var appointMent = {
//need to add an email here
name: req.body.name,
phone: req.body.phone,
address: req.body.address,
start: req.body.appointment.start,
end:req.body.appointment.end,
details:req.body.details,
address:req.body.address
};

console.log(appointMent);

appointment.save(appointMent,
function(err,resp) {
if(err) {
console.log(err);
res.send({
message :'something went wrong'
});
} else {
res.send({
message:'the appointment has bees saved'
});
}

});
})

Answer

try this code below and Make me understand if error will be the same

app.post('/saveappointment', function(req, res) {

var appointment = new Appointment({
                      //need to add an email here 
                      name: req.body.name,
                      phone: req.body.phone,
                      address: req.body.address,
                      start: req.body.appointment.start,
                      end:req.body.appointment.end,
                      details:req.body.details,
                      address:req.body.address
                    });


    appointment.save(function(err,resp) {
        if(err) {
            console.log(err);
            res.send({
                message :'something went wrong'
            });
        } else {
            res.send({
                message:'the appointment has bees saved'
            });
        }           

    });
})
