Delete using Query Builder

Delete

You can create DELETE queries using QueryBuilder. Examples:
await myDataSource
.createQueryBuilder()
.delete()
.from(User)
.where("id = :id", { id: 1 })
.execute()
This is the most efficient way in terms of performance to delete entities from your database.

Soft-Delete

Applying Soft Delete to QueryBuilder
await dataSource.getRepository(Entity).createQueryBuilder().softDelete()
Examples:
await myDataSource
.getRepository(User)
.createQueryBuilder()
.softDelete()
.where("id = :id", { id: 1 })
.execute();

Restore-Soft-Delete

Alternatively, You can recover the soft deleted rows by using the restore() method:
await dataSource.getRepository(Entity).createQueryBuilder().restore()
Examples:
await myDataSource
.getRepository(User)
.createQueryBuilder()
.restore()
.where("id = :id", { id: 1 })
.execute();
