Is it necessary to have a ES Index Template specified in Filebeat?

Is it possible to have ES indexes created without an index template in Filebeat ?

The reason I ask is that we have field mapping conflicts with our log data.
For eg: "service" is defined as an object in default template which filebeat creates but we have it as a string. Therefore this is rejected by ES.
