How to delete a parameter from the message?

Using plugins to remove specific fields from the device messages.

The "msg-erase" plugin type is used to delete specific parameters from the messages of the designated devices.

Note: certain system parameters cannot be deleted from the message as they ensure the correct operation of the flespi platform. You can find the complete list of system parameters here.
