TTL or Expiration Time for nodes?

I looked through the docs, and I couldn’t see if there was a TTL or expiration time on node creation. Neo4J has a build in procedure for purging nodes from a graph based on the TTL property, so it would be nice if that is included in memgraph. I don’t think that this feature currently exists – or if it does, then I did not see it.

For now, I am probably going to deploy a custom worker to inspect properties of nodes, but it would be nice if there was a ttl or ex property that can be set at the node (and relationship) level.

If this already exists, then it would be great if someone could point me in the right direction. Thanks!

Hi @just-tryin-to-graph, this feature does not exist in Memgraph currently, but we do have an open issue on GitHub regarding this, and your comment there would help our devs better prioritize. It would be awesome if you could add what is your use case and why exactly would such a feature make sense for you and how urgent it is.
