I am getting ready to make the jump from 2.4 to 5.X and see that string fields are now dynamically mapped as both a text and keyword field by default. My question is, does it hurt anything to leave the keyword field in place even though I will never be using it for aggregations, etc? Would doing so cause unnecessary bloat in the index? I have a lot of fields and would prefer not to have to manually edit the dynamically generated mapping if at all possible. Any guidance/thoughts that anyone may have would be appreciated. Thanks.
