GraphQL–HotChocolate–Exclude specific fields when using the code first approach

HotChocolate tries to help you as much as possible to automatically generate the GraphQL schema for you when using the Code First approach. It will scan through all the types to look for public properties and methods and adds them as GraphQL fields to the schema object type.

But what if you want to exclude a specific field? Here are 2 possible ways to do this.
