How to disable geoip usage in 7.16.2

Hi, I want to disable the usage of geoip functionality because I have no usage for it. I have a three node cluster, which works fine with one voting only node and two master eligible and data nodes.
The Elasticsearch version is 7.16.2. if you require any other information do comment.

Is there any way to disable completely the .geoip_database usage and prevent this index from starting?

Hi @rachit_upadhyay

PUT /_cluster/settings
{
  "persistent": { 
  "ingest.geoip.downloader.enabled" : "false"
  }
}
