How to skip a field/property during restore

I'm using ES 2.0.1, would anyone know how to skip/exclude a field/property during the restore operation? I'm importing an index snapshot and there is a field there which has a malformed name, which I don't really need. I'd like to restore the index but skip that one property.
I'd appreciate any help in this matter.


You can't.

Snapshot is made on segment level not per doc.

But if you are using a recent version of elasticsearch you can use reindex API instead.
