    Usage

    Just add the pluging to the schema you wish to save history trace logs:

    const mongoose = require('mongoose')
    const mongooseHistoryTrace = require('mongoose-history-trace')
    const Schema  = mongoose.Schema
     
    const User = new Schema({
        name: String, 
        email: String,
        phone: String
    })
     
    User.plugin(mongooseHistoryTrace, options)

    This will generate a log from all your changes on this schema.

    Or define plugin in global context mongoose for all schemas. Example:

    const mongooseHistoryTrace = require('mongoose-history-trace')
     
     
    mongoose.plugin(mongooseHistoryTrace, options)

    The plugin will create a new collection with name historyTrace by default.

    You can also change the name of the collection by setting the configuration customCollectionName:

    const mongooseHistoryTrace = require('mongoose-history-trace')
     
     
    mongoose.plugin(mongooseHistoryTrace, options)

    Result Format

    The history trace logs documents have the format:

    {
        "_id": ObjectId,
        "createdAt": ISODate,
        "user": { Mixed }           // paths defined for you
        "changes": [ 
            {
                "to": String,       // current path modification
                "path": String,     // name path schema
                "from": String,     // old path modification
                "ops": String,      // name operation "updated" | "created" | "deleted",
                "label": String     // name capitalized path schema 
            }
        ],
        "action": String           //name action "Created Document" | "Updated Document" | "Removed Document",
        "module": String           // name of collection by default
        "documentNumber": String   // _id of document schema
        "method": String           //name of method call: "updated" | "created" | "deleted"
    }

    Methods

    - addLoggedUser({ object }) [required]

    You can define logged user in request. Initialize the plugin using the addLoggedUser() method, before call method mongoose. Example:

    async function update (req, res) {
        const user = req.user   //< -- GET user on request
        ...
     
        Model.addLoggedUser(user)   //<-- SET LOGGED USER in context
        
        const result = await Model.findByIdAndUpdate(query, {$set: mod})
     
        return res.send(result)    
    }

    Back to Table Contents

    - getChangeDiffs(old, current)

    Returns list of differences between old and current objects. Call getChangeDiffs(old, current) method mongoose to return list of diffs. Example:

    {
      // omited logic
       ...
     
        const result = Model.getChangeDiffs(old, current)
        /**
        result:
         [{label, ops, path, from, to}]
        **/
    }

    Back to Table Contents

    - createHistory({ old, current, loggedUser, method })

    You can create a history log manually. Call createHistory({ old, current, loggedUser, method }) method mongoose to save diffs manually. Example:

    async function update (req, res) {
        const user = req.user   //< -- GET user on request
        // omited logic
        ...
     
        const params = { old, current, loogedUser: user, method: 'updated' } // <-- fields required in params
     
        const result = Model.createHistory(params)
        
    }

    Paths in params

    old {Object} [optional]: Object before update
    current {Object} [optional]: Object after update or create
    loggedUser {Object} [required]: Object logged user in context. Required define paths user in options params: Define path user
    method {String} [required]: Name of operation to saved (updated, deleted, created)

    Obs.: You can create log history without path logged user, pass in options plugin {isAuthenticated: false} Save without logged user

    Options

    - Custom value for label in changes.label

    By default, the label name is the same as the capitalized schema field name. It is possible to define a custom name, for that it is enough in the schema to pass the private field _label_ and custom value "new label". Example:

     
    const User = new Schema({
        "name": String, 
        "active": {"type": String, "_label_":"Other Name Label"}, //<- define custom label in path
        "phone": String
    })
     

    Thus, instead of saving the capitalized name of the schema field, save the name passed in the private field _label_. Example result:

     
    {
        //...omited fields          
        "changes": [ 
            {
                "to": true,       
                "path": "active",     
                "from": "",     
                "ops": "created",     
                "label": "Other Name Label"     //<- saved name pass in _label_ path in the schema 
            }
        ],
        //...omited fields
    }

    - changeTransform

    Define custom paths name in changes. You can modify the paths name in changes field. It is possible to define a custom path name, for this, just define a custom path name in options.

     
    const options = {
        "changeTransform": {
                "to": "newPathName",       
                "path": "newPathName",     
                "from": "newPathName",     
                "ops": "newPathName",     
                "label": "newPathName"      
            }
    }
     
    User.plugin(mongooseHistory, options)
     

    It is possible to change all fields in changes.

    If the value of a field is empty, or is not passed, the default field is maintained.

    - indexes

    You can define indexes in collection, for example:

    const options = {indexes: [{'documentNumber': -1, 'changes.path': 1}]}
     
    User.plugin(mongooseHistory, options)

    Back to Table Contents

    - userPaths

    Required if saved logged user. Selects the fields in the object logged user will be saved. If nothing is passed, then the log will not be saved:

    const options = {userPaths: ['name', 'email', 'address.city']}
     
    User.plugin(mongooseHistory, options)

    Back to Table Contents

    - isAuthenticated

    Path 'user' in log history is required, but you can saved logs without path loggedUser. Example: Value default is TRUE

    const options = {isAuthenticated: false}
     
    User.plugin(mongooseHistory, options)

    So it is not necessary to pass the user logged into the Model.addLoggedUser() method. The resulting log will not contain the "user" field.

    "user": { Mixed }  // REMOVED
    

    Back to Table Contents

    - customCollectionName

    You can define name of collection history trace logs. By default, the collection name is historyLogs, example:

    const options = {customCollectionName: 'logs'}
     
    User.plugin(mongooseHistory, options)

    Back to Table Contents

    - moduleName

    You can define moduleName path saved in history trace logs. By default, the module name is name of collection, example:

    const options = { moduleName: 'login-user' }
     
    User.plugin(mongooseHistory, options)

    Back to Table Contents

    - omitPaths

    You can omit paths do not saved in history trace logs in path changes:[] from collection. By default, is paths _id and __v to be omited, example:

    const options = { omitPaths:['name', 'email', 'ip'] }
     
    User.plugin(mongooseHistory, options)

    Back to Table Contents

    - connectionUri

    You can save history trace logs collection in another url database. By default, the collection is saved to the connection project itself, example:

    const options = { connectionUri: 'mongodb://localhost/other_db' }
     
    User.plugin(mongooseHistory, options)

    Back to Table Contents

    - addCollectionPaths

    You can add new paths in collection history trace logs, example:

    const options = { addCollectionPaths:[
            {key: 'field1', value: 'String'},
            {key: 'field2', value: 'Date', defaultValue: ''},
            {key: 'field1.subField', value: 'String'},         
    ] }
     
    User.plugin(mongooseHistory, options)

    key - name path

    value - [optional] mongoose types. Example:('ObjectId', 'Mixed', 'String', 'Number', etc). default value is mongoose types 'Mixed'.

    defaultValue - [optional] define the default value of path

    Obs.: It is not possible to add new fields in the changes field. New fields will be added to the collection body.
