Method problem with ValidatedMethod and collection.remove

Hello everyone, my first time here.

So i just started using meteor and moving slowly, so far i was always able to find a solution to my problems but can’t seem to get this one.

Here is the code that seems to be the culprit:

export const TableDelete = new ValidatedMethod({
    name: 'table.delete',
    validate: Tables.simpleSchema().pick(['_id']).validator({ clean: true, filter: false }),
    run({ _id }) {
        if (!this.userId) {
            throw new Meteor.Error('Tables.methods.TableDelete.notLoggedIn', 'Must be logged in to delete a table.');
        const userId = this.userId;
        return Tables.remove({ userId, _id });

Here is where i call it:

import { TableDelete } from '/imports/api/tables/methods.js';

function OnTableDelete(event) {
    const parent = element.parentNode;
    const _id =;{ _id });
    'click .Table_list_delete': OnTableDelete,

And here is the error i get from it:

insert failed: Error: Name is required

meteor.js?hash=27829e9…:930 Error invoking Method 'table.delete': Name is required [400]

I don’t understand the error really, i already have an insert and update method for the exact same collection, using mostly the same syntax when it comes to implementing the method or calling it, but this one is not working for some reason.

I am not sure what the Name refers to in the error, is it the one in my collection schema i made ? and if so why, i am not picking it in the validation, only the _id.

Also why is it saying insert failed when it is a remove, i mean if it was an insert, then yes, the name field would be missing because it is required, but i am doing a remove here.

I’m going to take a guess and say you have multiple definitions for TableDelete or name:'table.delete', and that one of them is tied to a method where you check for name and try to perform an insert.

I’d double check your export names as well as the name prop of each validated method, as I’ve had issues in the past with duplicates as a result of using copy-pasta to duplicate the validated method template.

Ok i found my problem, when i started with meteor, i followed a bunch or tutorials and tested a lot of things and had an extends Mongo.Collection for this collection that i forgot to modify after i really started working on my project, in it was a mistake, i as calling super.insert in the remove.

I completely forgot about its existence and was not looking for a possible mistake at this place…

Thanks anyways and sorry for the stupid topic.
