I have created an index template, where I am defining an "ignore_above" mapping parameter for a "keyword" field type.
Now I want to update the mappings and want to add a new parameter "eager_global_ordinals" for the same "keyword" field using the PUT mappings API,
I can see the API returning 200OK.
So to verify the mapping when I call GET index-name, I can see the new mappings "eager_global_ordinals", but not able to see "ignore_above"?
I checked, and found out that "ignore_above" property is getting overrided with default value?
Meaning PUT mappings API overriding the mappings parameter to default value, if i dont pass any.
is there any way to avoid this behavior?
Any help is much appreciated!! Thank You!
