Index created with too many fields, automatic creation

hi, I've been trying to setup apache module Filebeat, with automatic index creation. after my index was created I wasn't able to create an index pattern in my Kibana UI with the error code 413 Request Entity Too Large","message":"Payload content length greater than maximum allowed: 1048576
Seeing that I checked out my index fields and mapping and found that the index was created with a huge amount of extra fields that I did not need. I also noticed that the index template that was created when I first ran Filebeat also contained all these fields. what am I missing?

Do you have a proxy in front of Kibana?
