About this task

Warning: Specifying a field as encrypted cannot be undone. Clicking Submit creates an encryption record that cannot be deleted. Encrypted fields can be marked as inactive (by clearing the Active box), and then the field contents decrypted, but the encryption record cannot be deleted, and the encryption type cannot be changed.

Procedure

  1. Navigate to Edge Encryption Configuration > Edge Encryption Configurations > Create New.
  2. Fill in the fields on the form, as appropriate.
    Table 1. Edge Encryption configuration
    Field Description
    Table The table to be encrypted.
    Type Whether to encrypt a table column or attachments for the table.

What to do next

After the encryption record has been added, you can create an encryption job to encrypt existing data. If you do not run an encryption job, the existing data is encrypted the next time it is changed.
