This library to provide simple soft delete and cascade soft delete in EF Core. It provides:

  • Useful methods: The features in this library are:
    • Set the SoftDeleted flag on an entity class, with checks.
    • Provides a secure query to find all the Soft Deleted entities for a specific entity class.
    • Reset the SoftDeleted flag on an entity class, which checks.
    • Hard delete (i.e. call EF Core Remove method) a entity class, but only if it is already Soft Deleted.
  • Cascade Soft Delete: This library has a service that can mimic the database cascade delete, but Soft Deleting the entities. For instance, Cascade Soft Deleting a Company could also soft delete dependent relationships (see image below).
  • Keeps your data secure: This library can handle Query Filters that contain multiple parts to the filter, e.g. Soft Delete with a multi-tenant filter. It builds queries that will replace the other filters so that your data stays secure.
