Flattened alternative for OSS verrsion

Is there an alternative/workaround for the flattened mapping type to prevent mapping explosion when using OSS elasticsearch version?

You'd need to build some code external to ES to do it for you.

Is there a reason you cannot use our Basic distro?

I'm using the Databases for Elasticsearch service from IBM Cloud which seems to be using OSS, and I don't think I can change it to basic or add external codes to it.

If you are using the OSS version you will need to manage field counts and document structure before you index.

Does that mean I need to transform the data structure to avoid Elasticsearch tries to create a field for the nested data before indexing?
