Express router route getting status 404 on Postman Code Answer

I’m trying to test routes done in express throught Postman but i keep getting status 404 despite i have another route that does work.

I won’t post the code to the routes that do work since there’s a lot of code written in here and seems unnecesary.


var createError = require("http-errors");
var express = require("express");
var path = require("path");
var cookieParser = require("cookie-parser");
var logger = require("morgan");
var cors = require("cors");
var bodyparser = require("body-parser")

var indexRouter = require("./routes/index");
var usersRouter = require("./routes/users");
var commentsRouter = require("./routes/comments")
var authRouter = require("./routes/auth")
var app = express();

var corsOption = {
  origin: true,
  credentials: true,
  exposedHeaders: ['x-auth-token']

// view engine setup
app.use(express.urlencoded({ extended: false }));
app.use(express.static(path.join(__dirname, "public")));
app.use(bodyparser.urlencoded({ extended: false }));

app.use(function (req, res, next) {
  if (req.originalUrl && req.originalUrl.split("/").pop() === "favicon.ico") {
    return res.sendStatus(204);

  return next();

app.use("/", indexRouter);
app.use("/users", usersRouter);
app.use("/comments", commentsRouter)
app.use("/auth", authRouter)

// catch 404 and forward to error handler
app.use(function (req, res, next) {

// error handler
app.use(function (err, req, res, next) {
  // set locals, only providing error in development
  res.locals.message = err.message;
  res.locals.error ="env") === "development" ? err : {};

  // render the error page
  res.status(err.status || 500);

module.exports = app;

Comments route

var express = require("express");
var router = express.Router();

//Get comment
router.get("/", function (req, res, next) {
    return res.status(200)
} )

/* Post new comment. */"/new", function (req, res, next) {
 return res.status(200)


//Update comments
router.put("/update", function (req, res, next) {

module.exports = router;

The index / route is working well but the /auth and /comments aren’t.

I’m trying with a GET to http://localhost:3000/comments


.status() wouldn’t end the response process. You need to explicit end it by chaining other methods such as .end() or .send().

Update the GET route of /comments with something like this.

router.get("/", function (req, res, next) {
    return res.status(200).end();
