Set up Data Schema

Set up Data Schema

Using the web console (opens in a new tab), navigate to the Schema section in the side menu, select people from the collections list, then click + in the top right corner.

In this example, we are defining a schema for the people collection, which dictates that the document must be an object and should include required fields for name (with a data type of string) and age (with a data type of number).

  type: "object",
  required: ["name", "age"],
  properties: {
    name: { type: "string" },
    age: { type: "number" }

You can copy & paste the schema object above to the popped-up textarea and hit Add.

With the defined schema, you cannot add a document that violates the schema requirements. For example:

set {name:123,age:"Bob"} people Bob
