I am very happy with the default mapping which filebeat provides for the index it creates.
The only thing I want to do is to add these two to the mappings:
numeric_detection: true date_detection: true
I tried with this in my yml with no success
setup.template.settings: numeric_detection: true date_detection: true
There has to be a way to specify these two settings in the mappings created by filebeat.
The unsustainable hack as of now is to extract the template for the index and then add the settings and then push it back. It works but there has to be an easier way which I do not know.
