How to access enumValues in mongoose from a Model or Document
var mongoose = require('./index')
, TempSchema = new mongoose.Schema({
salutation: {type: String, enum: ['Mr.', 'Mrs.', 'Ms.']}
});
var Temp = mongoose.model('Temp', TempSchema);
console.log(Temp.schema.path('salutation').enumValues);
var temp = new Temp();
console.log(temp.schema.path('salutation').enumValues);

So neat, but doesn't work for me (mongoose 3.6.20): for the path() function, my enum fields must be prefixed with ".enum", and there is no "enumValues" property on the returned object. This works for me... console.log(Temp.schema.path('salutation.enum').options.type) // We get ['Mr.', 'Mrs.', 'Ms.']

Update: bnoguchi's neater version works if you do Temp.path("salutation").enum('Mr.', 'Mrs.', 'Ms.'); after you've defined the schema (i was using salutation: {enum: ['Mr.', 'Mrs.', 'Ms.']} in the Schema constructor parameter, which doesn't seem to work as well).

I've salutation sub-document inside profile document, so Temp.schema.path('profile.salutation').enumValues works in my case.

If you want to know all the enum values inside in array type, you need something like this:

temp.path('salutation.0.type').enumValues
