Change mapping from text to match_only_text

Existing indices having field app.message in text field type. now it has to be changed from "text" to "match_only_text" for new records. Will it impact any of the searches?

Hi Vijaya, Welcome to the Elastic community.

It will not allow to change the type of existing field. However you can add new filed with type match_only_text.


You can create new index with mapping match_only_text and reindex your data.
