How to understand "Strings longer than the ignore_above setting will not be indexed or stored."?

I want to verify whether my understanding about the meaning that the glossary "not be indexed" and "not be stored" is right.
I suppose "not be indexed" means that the terms analysed from the original field value will not be indexed to the underlying index(may be a SkipList or RedBlackTree) . In addition, the
"not stored" means that the full original field value will not be stored to the index node.

Maybe bother you, i'am a student and just recently to learn ElasticSearch.



Correct. But note that it won't remove it from the _source field which is stored by default. It only applies to a given field.

I got it, thanks a lot!
