Hi ES team,
I am trying to build a custom ES template where one field would occasionally passes a string that matches with date format causing mapping conflicts and dropping of data by logstash. If i try to disable auto date detection for a field in advanced settings, the index is coming up fine but i couldn't search based on time in kibana as ES is treating timestamp field as a string.
I would want something with auto date detection on and one field to be a string no matter what type of data is passed through it. Can you please let me know of potential solutions for this?
