Enable Index after disabling it

Index attribute enables / disables indexing on elasticsearch. I am wondering if I can do the following:

  • Disable indexing (set index to false) on a field.
  • At some point in future, enable indexing on that field.

This is not a global index configuration, I just want to do it on a selected set of fields. I quickly tried on 6.8 and it wouldn't let me update the mapping. Hence, I wanted to check if there are other options or considerations. I have a business use case where this feature would be super useful. I would like to avoid wide indices (too many fields). Thank you.

It's not possible sorry.

Bummer, but thank you for the confirmation.
