Potentially super noob question, but could not find anything here or at stackoverflow.
In my application (currently working on the backend with express), I want users to store data based on their own JSON schema definitions. So they should be able to store a JSON schema and then later on upload data that should be validated using this schema. The data is similar (in a way that I want to put it in the same collection), but still different (in the way that it needs their own validation).
What is the best way to do this?
I was planning on having just one collection, make users submit the schemaID they want to use to validate their data, get this schema from the database and use it for validation. For this, my question would be how to properly create a collection of JSON schemas.
However, MongoDB uses these schemas for collections, anyway, so should I rather create individual (user defined) collections for each submitted schema so I can take advantage of the built-in validation? If yes, I then have to ask somewhere else how to dynamically create the respective routes in my applicationn:)
Thanks in advance.
