OCluster - hideRecord()

Removes a record from queries without deleting the record from the database.

Hiding Records

In OrientDB you can remove a record from queries without actually removing the data from the database. This is done by setting a 'tombstone' on the record, indicating to OrientDB that it should remain hidden. You may find this useful when implementing a 'trashcan' safety feature, to prevent users from accidentally deleting data from the database.
