Build Status


A Meteor package that allows you to deny inserting or updating certain properties in your database by setting options in your schema.


In your Meteor app directory, enter:

$ meteor add aldeed:schema-deny


If you set denyUpdate: true, any collection update that modifies the field will fail. For instance:

1const postSchema = new SimpleSchema({
2  title: {
3    type: String
4  },
5  content: {
6    type: String
7  },
8  createdAt: {
9    type: Date,
10    denyUpdate: true
11  }
14const Posts = new Mongo.Collection('posts');
17const postId = Posts.insert({title: 'Hello', content: 'World', createdAt: new Date()});

The denyInsert option works the same way, but for inserts. If you set denyInsert to true, you will need to set optional: true as well.
