NodeJS returns no results with Elasticsearch / Mongoosastic

I'm trying to create a simple search form to search in one Model (Products).

Here is my Product Model using Mongoosastic:

var ProductSchema = new Schema({
    category: { type: Schema.Types.ObjectId, ref: 'Category'},
    name: String,
    price: Number,
    image: String,
    description: String

ProductSchema.plugin(mongoosastic, {
    hosts: [

I connect ElasticSearch with Product model like so:

Product.createMapping(function (err, mapping) {
    if (err) {
      console.log("error creating mapping");
    } else {
      console.log("Mapping created");

var stream = Product.synchronize();
var count = 0;
stream.on('data', function () {
stream.on('close', function () {
   console.log("Indexed" + count + " documents");
stream.on('error', function (err) {

After that I created the GET method to render the results page like so:

router.get('/search', function (req, res, next) {
if (req.query.q){{
        query_string: { query: req.query.q }
    }, function (err, results) {
        if (err) return next(err);
        var data = (hit) {
            return hit;

        res.render('main/search-result', {
            query: req.query.q,
            data: data

And in the frontend page I loop through results like so:

    <div class="row">
    <% for (var i = 0;i < data.length; i++){%>
    <div class="col-md-4">
        <a href="/product/<%= data[i]._source._id %>"></a>
        <div class="thumbnail">
            <img src="<%= data[i]._source.image%>" alt="">
            <div class="caption">
                <h3><%= data[i] %></h3>
                <h4><%= data[i] %></h4>
                <h5><%= data[i]._source.price %></h5>
                <p><%= data[i]._source.description %></p>

    <% } %>

In the terminal everything is Ok

Server is Running on port 3000
Mapping created
{ acknowledged: true }
Connected to the database
Indexed120 documents

Why are there no results rendered on my page?

  1. Check your Database. Is there any record in the document?
  2. Print the query parameter. And also print the search query.
  3. Check your URL with Postman.
