Ignoring a field completely

Is there a way in ES 6 to include a detail in Mapping where upon insertion the field is completely ignored by ES meaning it should neither be indexed nor be stored as part of '_source'

Not indexed: yes.
Not part of source: why do you send it in the 1st place? If you can't filter that from your application, look at ingest feature which will modify the source before it gets actually indexed.

Thanks.. I had thought there could be some feature like that.. I think best approach for us is to filter it at application level

Always better to reduce the network bandwidth usage :slight_smile:
