CommCare Cloud release notes 2022-12-13

2022-12-13 remove-unused-elastic-settings :link:

CommCareHQ has two settings (CASE_ES_DROP_FORM_FIELDS and ES_XFORM_DISABLE_ALL) that were created several years ago for tuning Elasticsearch in a specific environment which no longer exists. This change removes support for those settings and the application logic that existed for them. We do not expect this to impact any self-hosted environments, but it’s prudent to confirm.
