Beats automaticaly create empty indices

Hello, is there a config to disable the Beats automaticaly creating indices for their version ? To give a better explanation, I have some beats writing to custom indices, we are all fine there but those beats still create indices with their default name which are empty.

I'm trying to manage my cluster to have as few shards as possible therefore I want to find a way to disable the auto creation of those empty indices which still increase my total shards number.

Thanks !

Delete the index template Filebeat has loaded. Then set setup.template.enabled to false to disable reloading the index template.

Okay i'll do it thank you.
