mongoose looking for a better way to get documents


This Content is from Stack Overflow. Question asked by Mehdi M

consider there are 3 collections :

Company : {

Department: {

Person: {

and we want to get all persons in a company, by company name.

i know the way to first get the company id in one query, and then get the list of department_ids in another query, and then get the list of persons, in another query with the list of Ids :

    async function query(){
        let companyId = await Company.findOne({name}).distinct('_id').exec();
        let departmentIds = await Department.find({company_id : companyId } ).distinct('_id').exec();
        let persons = await Person.find({department_id : departmentIds}).exec();

I want to know is there any better way to do this, I mean is it possible to use populate method or aggregation here? and if yes how?
thanks in advance.
