Schema type is missing a required property

Every schema type needs both a type and a name property. The type specifies which type your schema type is (e.g. if its a document, an object or a string). The type name is the name of which you will refer to this type later on. E.g. if you want to add a field that is a reference to a value of one of your own schema types, you will typically do something like this:

[
  { // defines the schematype "author"
name: 'author',
type: 'document', fields: [/*...*/] }, //... { // defines the schema type "book" name: 'book', type: 'document', fields: [ {name: 'title', type: 'string'}, { name: 'author', type: 'reference', to: [ {
type: 'author' // <-- refers to the schema type "author" by its name
} ] } } ]
