DreamFactoryTutorialsNode field level security

Always remove some fields depending on the current role. API call returns 'tax_identifier' and 'date_of_birth' from the database. Before returning JSON content to the client, remove tax_identifier and date_of_birth.

For this change to take effect, you have to enable modification of response in the Admin Console script editor. Check the box 'Allow script to modify request (pre-process) or response (post-process)'.

// To enable Node.js scripting, set the path to node in your DreamFactory .env file.
// This setting is commented out by default.
// DF_NODEJS_PATH=/usr/local/bin/node
// Use npm to install any dependencies. This script requires 'lodash.'
// Your scripts can call console.log to dump info to the log file in storage/logs.
// get.post_process
// check for your special role name that allows access
