Not sure if I am overcomplicating things and bothering unnecessarily...
I have finally got apache logs importing nicely using Filebeat and the Apache module.
I am simply using the fields.yml and therefore the index template is massive... Is there any way to only include the fields that are used in the module or maybe use the Index to generate fields and mappings that are being used?
Maybe I don't actually need to worry about this as the field definitions and mappings don't take up space or cause issues... The only downside I can see is when viewing data to make new searches etc there is a huge number of fields to scroll through!
Any help, advice or reassurance greatly appreciated.
