How to set total limit field to be other than 1000 by default


I would like to increase the limit of total fields for my indices.
I know that we can change it in Kibana by sending an API call as such:

PUT logstash-*/_settings
  "index.mapping.total_fields.limit": 5000

But this can be done only for the indices that are already created.
How do I set the default value of total field limit before the index is created?

Thanks and Regards

That can be done in an index template.

Sorry, I am new to this.
Can you tell me how?
