I have a mapping for the index I want to create in ElasticSearch. I want to disable indexing for all the fields in the mapping and enable only for a few fields which I can specify. Any suggestions for which mapping parameters or settings would suffice for this?
See https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/elasticsearch/reference/current/dynamic.html. You can set either
dynamic: strict in the mappings if you want to reject all documents that have unmapped fields, or
dynamic: false to keep accepting any document, but only index the subset of their fields that have a mapping.
Actually using dynamic:false would only ensure that no extra field gets indexed. But I want to disable indexing for all the fields in my mapping and just define their datatypes manually.
