2.0.2 • Public • Published

node-sequelize-noupdate-attributes

A Sequelize plugin which adds no update and readonly attributes support to models.

donate tests npm

Note: Starting from version 2.0.0, the plugin supports Sequelize v6.
Ensure to have at least the v6.16.0 since there are some typings and functions, like .getAttributes(), that weren't available from v6.1.0.

Installation

Ensure the sequelize package has been previously installed in the project.

npm install --save sequelize-noupdate-attributes

Usage

How to Import

If you are using Javascript, you can import using the regular CommonJS require as follows:

const sequelizeNoUpdateAttributes  = require('sequelize-noupdate-attributes');

If you are using Typescript, you can use the require calls, or just the Ecmascript modules import:

import sequelizeNoUpdateAttributes from 'sequelize-noupdate-attributes';

How to Use

Add the plugin to the sequelize instance, then set the noUpdate or readOnly properties in your models as demonstrated in the examples below:

const sequelizeNoUpdateAttributes = require('sequelize-noupdate-attributes');

const sequelize = new Sequelize('sqlite::memory:');

// Note that the passed reference is the `sequelize` instance.
sequelizeNoUpdateAttributes(sequelize);

const Post = sequelize.define('Post', {
  content: {
    type    : DataTypes.STRING,
    noUpdate: true
  }
});

What this does is to mark the content attribute so if an update is done, then:

  • if the field's previous value is null, it will accept the change
  • if the field's previous value is not null, it will trigger a ValidationErrorItem error.

so, the content field becomes readonly after its becomes not null.

Works too with foreign key fields in associations:

models.Post.belongsTo(models.Person, {
  as        : 'Creator',
  foreignKey: {
    allowNull: false,
    noUpdate : true    // It will mark the `CreatorId` field to be `noUpdate`.
  }
});

Readonly Attributes

If you want truly readonly attributes with no modifications at all being allowed, you can use the readonly option as shown below:

const Post = sequelize.define('Post', {
  content: {
    type    : DataTypes.STRING,
    readOnly: true
  }
});

// Or
const Post = sequelize.define('Post', {
  content: {
    type    : DataTypes.STRING,
    noUpdate: {
      readOnly: true
    }
  }
});

which effectively disables any modification on the content attribute, no matter if the previous value was null or not, though the exception is when the record is new.

If by any chance both readonly and noUpdate are present, readOnly takes precedence if is truthy.

Notes

  • The plugin does its work by registering a custom beforeValidate hook named noUpdateAttributes.

  • If the plugin triggers a validation error, it will be a Sequelize ValidationError instance containing an errors property of type ValidationErrorItem[].

    Each ValidationErrorItem instance will have an attribute called validatorKey, which, in the case of a plugin validation error, will be 'noUpdateAttribute'.
