Getting Data In

As an already indexed field can't be removed, can I hide it globally?

for GDPR compliance I need to modify a ClientIP field that is already indexed (4+ year so far) and wipe it.
Was thinking on dumping the whole index and load it to a different one, but that will blow my license with just a couple of days of data.

As it seems is not possible to delete it from index, there is any chance of hiding it from all queries or change its value globally?

thanks.

You want to hide all data which has the ClientIP field from searching OR just mask that field value?

Also, you could do a summary indexing to move data from one index to another index, without utilizing the license.

I want to just mask that field value.

And where can I read more about that summary indexing?, sounds like I could transform the data on the fly?
